I think I'm beginning to realize I started my NaNoWriMo novel at the wrong place. Originally I'd planned to start at the wedding, and show the previous year in flashbacks throughout the wedding ceremony. Then I decided I don't like doing flashbacks and, instead I started it where the main character meets her husband-to-be. Now I'm thinking I should actually start the tale after they've been married about 2 years, right when all the real drama starts up, and show the previous three years in flashbacks. Hmph.

Oh well, I will just keep writing from here, and then when I've got the rough draft done, I'll mess with starting points and flashbacks and junk like that. Got in 2,528 words last night, huzzah. Which means tonight Cowboy can take me out to eat and go shopping. I'm hoping to find a new nice shirt to wear to the Thanksgiving Eve service at home, and he needs new shoes. Fun fun fun! I'm really looking forward to taking a break from the writing, actually...

  1. I think a lot of novels nver get finished just from this flashback editing impulse -- keep going, damn the torpedoes!

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
