1,149 words of novel #2 written tonight. After a slightly stuttering start the other day I feel like I'm getting a bit more into my stride now. Despite the fact I finished editing novel #1 back in November last year it's quite hard shaking off the memory of my old main character and stepping into the shoes of my new one. It's a bit like I was in love with my old character but we can't be together any more so I'm trying to fall in love with someone new but I'm finding it hard (because I still have strong feelings for my old character). That said I know that the more I get to know my new character the more I'll love her until, eventually, my old character will just be a warm memory and I'll be madly in love with my new character.
Does that make sense to anyone other than me?
Unlike novel#1 where I knew exactly what was going to happen in the first three chapters I'm not 100% sure how to write the first few chapters of this novel. That said, at the moment, I'm enjoying the experience of feeling my way into the story and not knowing exactly what's around the corner. It makes the novel more exciting to write.
