#WhitWritesHerNovel: Taking the Time to FOCUS.

I have so many high expectations for this novel, even though it is my first one.  I want so much to come out of this experience, that if I only sell one copy (possibly to my mother, lol) I will be happy.  Hell, if I only print one copy and put it on my bookshelf for myself, I’ll be happy.  I want to be able to say that I accomplished that one thing in life.  I pray hard about this all the time, for this to be a great experience for me.  For me to build a fan base, for people to say “Hey, you wrote………” and I say “Yes, I did! :)”  Lol….yea, that’s my dream.  Call it whatever you want, but everyone has that one thing they want to accomplish out of life.  I hope this is the one thing for me. 🙂

I must say I am having an awesome time charting these scenes out.  It has sparked so many more ideas.  I am so glad that I didn’t go with my first rewrite and sat down and talked to some people and realized that I could make this so much better if I just sit down and really dissect each part of the book.  I did a full analysis of where my book was at that point and realized, it wasn’t what I wanted it to be.  Now that I am going back and charting the scenes and really getting into it, I have seen it in a totally different light.  I have a few more scenes to go before I go back and read through all my scenes, edit and add where necessary.  Then and only then will I go back and do an edit and rewrite.  I am hoping that by the beginning of the summer, I will be ready for a few test readers.  Can’t wait for the next step in this process!
