When I finished the first draft of my novel back in January I was pretty happy with myself. Little did I realize that I had a boatload of work ahead of me, and a lot more work than writing the first draft. O was a bit naive about the whole novel writing endeavor since this is my first time through. I guess that's understandable. Now I'm focusing on finishing my second draft and I'm going to use NaNoWriMo to do it. I mean, it worked last time.
So, I'm inventing a new way to count words, wherein when I'm done with my second draft, the word count will be 50k. When I am half done, I'll be at 25k. Simple.
