This weekend I had a strange urge to work on Rise of the Dawn. I felt like Obi-wan: “now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time.”
Maybe it’s just procrastination. I’ve been writing a different piece and have set a goal of 2,000 words per week, which isn’t a lot but is sometimes all I can manage.
The crazy part is that I actually went ahead and revised what I had for Chapter 28 from so many years ago and then kept going. I dug up my old notes and I more or less remember where the story is supposed to go. The trouble is that I don’t remember everything that happened. There are like 500 characters and places and it’s been almost 8 years.
I have to reread it to catch up but that is what always stalls me when I try to finish this story. The whole thing desperately needs an overhaul but it’s currently some 333,000+ words. So daunting.
As a compromise I’ve resolved to revise only the first chapter for now, then to skim the rest, and see if I can finish Chapter 28. It would feel so great to finish it, though.
Anyway I’m trying to figure this WordPress thing out. I took a look at using Tumblr or Twitter but they confuse me. I think I’m secretly 100 years old…
