Novel Writing 8: the Second Novel Rolls On
It’s been a long time coming!
My last post related to novel writing was almost two months ago now. At that stage, I was plunging into the first draft of my second novel. So, what’s happened in these past 60 days?
Well, quite a lot! I attended the Melbourne Writers Festival, took part in a Writers Victoria publishing intensive, and generally got to know more about my local writing community. I’ve really enjoyed getting out there and connecting with other writers, and it’s been a really massive time of learning for me.
In the midst of this, I’ve still been plugging away at my second novel. I’m now almost 60K words in, and am nearing the end! I’ve had a really up and down time with this manuscript, but it’s exciting to get to some sections I’ve been looking forward to writing for quite some time.
If you want to get more regular updates on where I’m at/what I’m writing, remember to follow me on my most active channel: Twitter! I’m always keen to connect with readers and writers, so stop by and say hi!
Now back to the manuscript! 🙂
