It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I’m choosing to fall back in love with one of my books that I’ve lost interest in. I’m doing it by tearing it apart and turning it into something else entirely!
I still love the concept, but, having put about 60,000-words in it, I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason I haven’t been able to finish it is that I’ve clearly gone down the wrong track. So I’m going to print out the pages, delete anything that doesn’t work for me and see what I need to change from the parts that do work.
Would I have liked to figure all of this out sooner? Definitely. But it’s a learning experience and that’s better than nothing, right?
Anyone else in this spot? Or am I the only one staring down at a mess of my own creation?
