Second Draft

Come on, get on with it. Where are my chapters?

I’m working on my second draft of my second novel, and it’s changing.  I wonder who is really in control: me or the characters?  Right now, I’m in control, but these characters won’t stand for it very much longer and will eventually take over if I’m not careful.  I think right now, I need to keep an outline of my changes because the second draft is changing.  I think by the third draft, I will flip to 1st person and tell from my main character’s point of view.  We shall see.  I wish writing was easier.  I think I will start blogging more when the frustration hits.  It is much better than wasting time on Facebook, a great time sucker.

Just one chapter at a time.
