So after my confession of rereading my NaNo wip and realizing it wasn't as bad as I thought, I've now decided to go full force and rework that puppy so I can enter it in the Blaze pitch contest at HQ.
But I find I'm having a problem connecting to the characters. I think Stacy blogged about this a while ago, but it's been nearly six months since I've written in these characters' mind sets, so to speak, and it's hard to get back into it. I don't want to just write and hope for the best, only to find out the completed story is disjointed because of the two different writing times. So I'm finding I have to take it slow, and do a lot of rereading.
This process is hard! But I believe in the story so I can't give up.
In the meanwhile, the Bride wip is simmering on the backburner, waiting to be picked back up once I have this potential Blaze squared away. The pitch contest deadline is May 18. I need to work on the one page synopsis for it.
