NaNoWriMo 2015: Day 19

19 Nov

I did a thing I haven’t done with this book before: Go back and change something I had already written. My standard writing process is that I forge ahead and never look back. If something occurs to to me, say in chapter 13 that affects something in chapter 7, I make a note in chapter 7 and then I go forward from chapter 13 *as if I had already written the extra stuff in chapter 7*. This way, I always have forward momentum.

Now, this was nothing major today. I wrote chapter 37 at my 5am session. When it came time to write chapter 38 during my breaks at the day job, I got to thinking “Hey, if I made one small change at the end of chapter 37, the tension would be upped for chapter 38.” So, I went back and re-wrote a few sentences at the end of 37 and then wrote 38. I figured it was literally about four lines so it wasn’t major, but I don’t normally do that kind of thing.
