I'm tinkering with my NaNo novel and I'm a little worried. While I'm fixing sentences and paragraphs, and making sure I've chosen the best word (and not used the same one over and over), I feel like I'm not changing enough. Everyone knows NaNo is supposed to be about writing crappy first drafts, so where's my crap?
I have a hard time believing that I just wrote that clean of a first draft, so now I spend my time worrying about my ability to objectively edit my own work. *sigh*
I do have some larger issues I plan to address after I finish this draft (I still haven't written the ending) so it's not like I think it's perfect, but I guess I feel like I should be doing more.
Sunday morning I woke up at 6am (thanks Owen) and worked until 4pm. By the end of that marathon session I edited roughly 40 pages and wrote 800 new words. A usual day for me is 10 pages edited and 100-200 new words, so I'm thrilled with the progress. Not only that, I did some major rearranging and chopped several sections that seemed "weird." Hopefully this means I'm finally editing properly.
Do you ever feel like this, or am I crazy?
