Hello, I thought I would introduce myself. I'm new to writing, part-time, doing lots of reading and video courses. Loving the process and am full of head-popping ideas. Just about to start my second draft, yes that's how new I am. The first draft has taken me over 6 months to write, then I looked at the video regarding plot, decided I had more than one plot, so have axed a tun of words (maybe that will be another storyline to follow up later). Back down to 62,000 words, and now realise that I have quite a lot of work to do. I've written myself a schedule. A summer schedule and a winter schedule, more time available in the winter schedule. regards Lesley ps just in case you wondered I've got three cocker spaniels.
