Writing a book has some pretty clear phases for me anyway…the first euphoric phase of NaNoWriMo has passed me by now. I’m at 15,000 odd words and the easy bits I planned are already on the page.
Now I’m in that phase where I have to work a bit harder to keep the story moving forward so that the characters don’t wander off in all directions. A bit of wandering is fine but this book has three main characters and it’s probably best they all stay in the same story or I’ll be in a bit of a mess at the end of the book.
I want to shout at them “Get back on the page. Stay in the story.”
