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!
