I worked with a great group of writers under the direction of Nancy Zafris and Helen Hooper as her fellow.
We talked shop every day around a giant table perfect for workshopping...
I've been writing every day and no matter how hectic the last minute wedding work gets, I'm going to try my hardest to keep it up.
But....my new book is being so stubborn!
I finished the first complete draft at 30,000 words and have been working on fleshing it out. However, I can't for the life of me get it above 40,000 words. It's fighting to be a novella, and I feel like I'm loosing the fight. I love the story, but am having a hard time making it more.
Any suggestions? What do you do when you're revising? How do you add to a novel? What are your words counts?
