I have been inspired by the nanowrimo folks to devote all of my free time in November to completing a novel. The problem is that in order to do it the way they are all doing it, I would need to begin a new novel. I’ve had an idea in mind for a book for children for a while, and this could be a great opportunity to begin (and conceivably finish) that project.
But in the last couple of weeks, I’ve finally gotten back to work on Never Enough, a novel that I began writing in 1999. I even finished revisions on the first chapter, which you can read here.
What I want to know is, do you think I should start the new project or complete the old one? Keep in mind I’ve got six chapters of the old one written, and have begun the seventh. But I could easily spend as much time revising chapters 2-6 as writing drafts of 7-12.
When I leave work at 5 (california time), I’ll get started on this. So if you want to vote, do so before then. Thanks!
