Mind Fire: Rewrite
48,413 / 65,000
Agh, my eyes are crossed. Added almost 5,000 words this weekend – adjusted the projected word count (don’t know how I feel about that) -and the end is in sight!
Interesting things that happened along the way:
-MC’s ~boyfriend did something I was really not expecting. Like so much, that we argued about it because it really changed the story. I kept saying like, “Are you really going to do that?” And he kept answering, “Just watch me.” And he did. And let me tell you, My MCs best friends are PISSED OFF.
-I had an epiphany about the epilogue – which is a huge relief because the original was tres cheesy. But now I have to figure something out… If the whole novel is written in 3rd person close following my MC…can the epilogue be written 3rd person close – about someone else? (obviously a different important character, but it ties up a lot of backstory that’s important about her, and which drove the whole novel). I could write it from the same POV as the rest of the book, but I don’t think it would be as effective…
Anybody got some suggestions/advice??
