This is the first day of the third week of NaNoWriMo Summer Camp. Today I started with doing an exercise from Tell It Slant. “Write a scene of an early memory.” I did that and ended with almost six hundred words about an early memory of a traumatic event that occurred over sixty years ago.
The memory has been weighing on me recently, so I am glad I wrote about it. It was upsetting to relive what had happened which made it difficult to concentrate on revising my manuscript.
I did work for 65 minutes, both on the exercise and on the book. A week ago, I had put some notes in Keep about potential reorganization of the manuscript. Today I looked at the notes and produced a new table of content which moves various chapters around and splits up others.
The work to achieve this reorganization feels daunting but I will attempt it at some point. Because of NaNoWriMo, I will be working this weekend, but I am also going to try to get out of the house. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
