As I mentioned in a previous post (#MoreJoy – Day 31 of 31 – NaNoWriMo), I had a number of “works in progress” for consideration as my WIP this November. Ultimately, I chose to commit to working on my HR Guide. I want it fully written, revamped, edited, and published by January 1st, so blasting through now isn’t a bad idea.
I have written the intro multiple times. 2014, a revision in 2017, an earlier revision of the current version in 2020. And yet, I wasn’t happy with the flow. It was solid, a good draft. Certainly addressed the content I wanted it to, at the time.
Now? I hated it. So I completely rewrote it from scratch. For my “checklist” tracking on my dashboard, I dealt with:
1. Introduction …Competition vs. selection
I managed to get 3536 words done (**for some reason, I wrote it down as 5500, a bit too ambitious), but I’m expecting to go to about 70K. Either way, Chapter 1 is relatively “done”, at least as a draft.
Jacob is also joining me for a writing quest this month, and he managed 398 words for Day One for a fantasy novel.
