I have made the decision to scrap the first two thousand words of my manuscript. After a week with the flu, and reading a book written by Beth Revis called Paper Hearts, it just seems like the direction to go. The story is still the same but the way it will be written is going to be different. There were many mistakes that would have to be edited anyway so it's better to take care of them now.
My goal remains the same. I will continue to blog my progress and steps taken forward (and backwards) with my manuscript. I have added many new elements and have actually completed the outline for the story. Meaning I have a beginning a middle and an end in mind. But, there are still many things to figure out, and of course I have to start writing it again. I am excited to do that now that I am feeling at least well enough to update my blog.
