I worked on the manuscript for ninety minutes today, compiling a new chapter which I am calling “Choices.” Right now, it is thirty-six pages, but I need to cut some things and more tightly focus the chapter. Since I took parts of other chapters to create “Choices,” I now have more work to do on those.
Chopping up the chapters that comprised my first chapter feels like I am losing the point of the book, but I do like the new structure I created. The book will now have two sections – Context and People. I think I will keep doing this process until the end of NaNoWriMo Summer Camp.
