I still have no idea how I am going to reach 25,000 words in 30 days, but at least I have a fresh(ish) story awaiting me.
So what happened to Galaxy Connectors? It is Galaxy Connectors.
As I began writing Galaxy Connectors, I didn't know a whole lot about writing. I barely planned, which caused me to have undeveloped characters and a weak plot. My villain didn't have a motive and the world was created while I was writing. The list could go on and on of things I did wrong. As the book progressed, it became harder and harder to stay interested writing and I finally became stuck.
That is when I consulted with my sister, who happens to be one of the best writers I know. She read through what I had on my first draft (this was quite painful for me, knowing how terrible it was).
She told me that I should re-do my story. I stripped it of almost everything, but still kept the general idea (so that I could keep the name). After that, I went into deep planning and did lots of research. Now, I have almost finished my planning!
...And Camp NaNo is rapidly approaching...
