So, with no editing or revising to be done - and it's been a LONG time since I've been able to say that - I'm back to the lovely existence of just writing.
Or I was! I started a new WIP around a month ago and got to the 25,000 word mark when I decided it wasn't working. It's a time travel novel - what else! - but while I love the premise and the characters, I realised I had chosen the wrong moment in time.
My instincts are usually trustworthy, and the nagging doubt was getting louder and louder. I took a week off to think about it and then decided to change it.
So that's what I'm doing. I'm not revising or editing - I'm rewriting what I've done so far. Hopefully my WIP will then have the foundations needed to be a strong manuscript.
It's a bit scary in the rewriting cave. To have to change 25,000 words is muddling, but I've been here before and it worked out. A writer needs to trust that inner voice. It's usually the one looking out for you.
