Last year, 2010, marked the 6th year that I have done NaNoWriMo. The first three years were failures of sorts, i.e. I did not finish. (Mostly health reasons.) The last three years I finished my novels, but I do not think I will be publishing any of them anytime soon
So that means I have three completed, and three uncompleted manuscripts in my drawer. So, enough with the rough drafts David, time to actually finish something.
This year I am committed to finishing one of these novels. Well, actually two, because I will be combining. In 2006, I wrote a novel with the stunning title of I Made the Devil do it. How can you not like and want to read a novel with a title like that? It is half-finished, but it was a little… bland. It needed spice. Which is where my 2005 novel Only Tuesday, comes in. I wrote about 25,000 words on this novel, but I never got anywhere. There were lots of beautiful scenes, and dialogues. But no point to the novel. So I am going to rip the guts out of it, and stuff them into I Made the Devil do it. Then, with some editing and re-writing, I think I will have a decent completed draft to start polishing.
Watch your bookshelves, because there might be a David Seven original arriving soon.
