Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back

I have been powering ahead with the novel this week. Unfortunately, a change to a sub plot meant I also had to delete 4000 words.

That's a total of 70,000 words I have deleted from the novel altogether. The word count is now still hovering at about 40,000. There's a long way to go.

Keep ploughing on Jen and don't worry about the word count. As you said in your last post, just get the words and the story down.

I do sympathise though - it is like climbing a mountain every day. I'm now at the thoroughly depressing stage of trying to write a query letter and synopsis, deciding my whole book is rubbish and maybe I should rewrite again. I think it's because I'm just scared of rejection...

There might be a long way to go, but there's a long way passed. hugs and luck. x
