I’ve been taking a break from creating new material. With 52 first drafts in my back pocket, I have plenty to work with.
My goals for this year are to start submitting to agents and publishers. To do this, I need great material to submit. So it’s revision time. I am going through all of my favorite first drafts and turning them into wonderful little books. It’s going great, and I have lots to choose from so far.
The is one hitch in my plan. And this hitch is what is making me happy today.
I keep writing new stuff. My idea list grows every day. Somedays I can’t just let it lie there as an item on a list. I immediately sit down and create a new first draft.
This is a great sign. I’m creating new material even when it is my plan to not create new material.
So … the 52 First Drafts Project was even more of a success than I knew. It has changed my brain into a one that wants to create instead of a brain that was being told to create.
This may be the biggest win so far.
