Editing This Year’s NaNo book

It’s time to look at one of the novels that I drafted in November during that crazy time of writing 10,000 words a day. I admit that I feel a little trepidation. As long as I don’t look at it, I can (mis)remember it as having all these brilliant insights. Still, maybe it’s time to run my list of ‘bad words’ against it and delete all of my:
just, really, Hopefully, But, And and a few dozen other words that I tend to overuse.

But then I’d have to do something about those ‘shrugged’ and I’m not sure I’m ready to face that.

I’ve been busy puttering around with an almost completed novel, so going to a first draft is going to be a shock, I fear. Oh well, I’m sure I can get through 10 pages twice today. And a start on deleting the words from my ‘bad words’ list. And it’s starting that is difficult. So, time to start.
