A really good thread on writing from Chuck Wendig.
Chuck is right. It gets harder.
We are on novel… 10 KD + 1 Andrea + 4 Edge + 4 Innkeeper + 3 Hidden Legacy + 1 Hugh = 23. On novel #24. Yay. And it’s difficult because there is now all this pressure to top yourself and to deliver.
We just had to backtrack and rewrite an action scene – on which we will be working once I finish this post – and it will require a consistency edit to make sure everything after the fight scene lines up. It wasn’t that the previous fight scene was bad. It just that it wasn’t spectacular and it had to be spectacular, because it’s Hidden Legacy and everything is over the top.
Turning off your inner editor is becoming harder and harder, but one can’t edit and write at the same time. 🙂
