Do you hear it?
It's just my heart. I love the feeling of diving into a new project. I've written a smashing premise and synopsis and am now about 6,000 words into the story, and I'm still at that all-tingly stage.
This novel is actually the rewrite of a novella. I had a basic idea there, but I realized there could be so much more and the character was screaming--DON'T CUT ME SHORT. FIND ME!
I am going to enjoy this stage because I know when I hit about 30,000 words, I will start the next stage. Hating my current WIP; wondering if I will ever get anywhere on it; and considering tossing the whole thing. So for now, here's to the love of a new project.
What are you working on? Nearing a finished rough draft? Revisions (Yuck)? Querying (and if you are, you should also be writing something new :)? What's up for you?
