Where does time go?

NaNoWriMo starts in a few days time and I thought I had it under control, the preparatory work that is.

Nothing could be further than the truth.

I was looking at the outline last night, and it was as if I had the finished book in my hands and I was doing the second reading, part of the endless editing process.

Plot holes bigger than sink holes were appearing before my eyes.

The start is, quite frankly, lame.

There something missing in the middle and there seems some disjointed writing that seems to have no relevance to anything before, so..

Back to the drawing board and …


What I need is some thing to hook the reader from page one, not put them to sleep.


How the hell am I going to get this mess into some sort of shape before the start.

I guess there’s no time like the present.

One thought on “Where does time go?

  1. I had similar issues with my first book. The key is to keep reshaping and brainstorming until you feel that it’s *mostly* there. The rest you’ll figure out as you go. And sometimes plot holes will resolve themselves when you get to them because the answer just seems obvious.
