Time for a NaNoWriMo update!
This year, I’m rewriting one of my high school novels, my second novel called Free. I haven’t touched the Word file in almost ten years, and I barely remember the story. I didn’t go back through and read it before NaNoWriMo. Instead, I’m writing it from scratch, creating new scenes and pushing boundaries.
I’m also doing a new thing: writing out of order. This is common for some writers, but I’ve never written a novel out of order before. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes. I doubt it’ll be perfect, but it’s something. I’ve already connected a couple of the scenes, which feels like putting two puzzle pieces together.
So far, I’ve worked a lot more on building a more memorable world since I didn’t remember much in the first place. I’ve also already added a new character who works a modern magical creature restaurant in a human town.
Hopefully, it’ll all go well as I continue working in a random order.
Percentage through: 36.86%
