Every month a question will be posed that may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Remember, the question is optional. You can write about anything that relates to your writing journey.
Let's give a warm welcome to our co-hosts, Tamara Narayan, Patsy Collins, M.J. Fifield, and Nicohle Christopherson!
This month's question is: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?
Indeed I have. I reworked a short fantasy into a novel. It has potential, but who knows when I'll get back to it.
I also reworked what were nothing more than a string of notes into my novel, A Lizard's Tail. The story idea dates to the mid-1970s, but I didn't begin writing the novel until around 2000. Then, I didn't get it published until 2014. So, to those of you who think you're taking too long to write your book, do not be discouraged.
It's never to late to begin,
and never too late to finish!
Today I'm thankful for the stories and novels I have completed. I'm also thankful for the ones that are still works in progress.
What are you thankful for? Ever reworked an old story to make it new? What's the longest it's taken you to write a novel?
