It's time for spring cleaning.
Not that kind!
I won't be getting off my butt to clean closets or dust the bookshelves. I'm talking about spring cleaning as it pertains to writing. I'm rethinking my goals, clearing out the doubts, and forging ahead with my third Sleepy Hollow book. I'm usually a pantser, but this book has been giving me fits...literally. Ask my husband.
I still don't have a definitive outline, but I have written down upcoming scenes which makes it much easier. Having done lots of work for hire in the past, that outline does make it easier. But as part of my spring cleaning, I'm tossing out the internal editor. So what if the first draft reads like a second grade summer vacation essay? It's a first draft. It's supposed to be crappy. If first drafts were perfect, they'd be finished novels. And, hey, rewriting is my life.
So this spring I'm pitching out the old and producing the new. And new ideas keep hatching like baby chicks.
How is your spring cleaning coming along?
I'm a fan of all things spooky. While you're here, be sure to take a look at my books.
