On novel writing

It’s so frustrating…I’ve got like TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND words down (it sounds like more in caps I think) but it’s all short story-ish. I’m aiming for a novel, not a … compilation. Nothing is going together right.

Have any of you ever written an entire book? Did you plan it out before hand or just … start? I have a bunch of good pieces, but it’s useless without a theme or something.

Maybe I need to plan more and start again.

Advice? Consolation?

  1. I have thought of a novel over and over, started writing one several times, outlined a few, drew a few sketches for a few…and that is where it ends. Great ideas, no follow through!
