You’re halfway through the month, looking back at what you’ve written and trying to figure out where you’re going, and realize you haven’t the least idea what this story’s so-called “plot” is supposed to be…
…and you feel like digging your own grave right now and just calling it quits. (please don’t, by the way. #TheWorldNeedsYourNovel)
And also, after you’ve pushed through, gotten to the end, and let your manuscript cool, odds are you’ll look at it and see a jumble of words trying desperately and unsuccessfully to hide from you the plot beneath. And with the triumph of a conquering warrior, you will revise that baby and bring to light the jewel that was waiting inside all the time. 🙂
Good luck, fellow Wrimos, and other writers too! Have a great one!
