I finished another editing pass on a novel; basically a review of the plot and characters. It's a good story, but what do I do next.? I wrote it in 2013, as my fourth NaNoWriMo and I have drafted three novels since then. And I have also finished about 160 Flash Fiction stories. So, I assume my style has improved, with all that.
I usually start NaNoWriMo after a top down design of story, the plot, the characters and their issues, the various arcs, and then a quick line or two on each scene. Then basically I write every day and fill in the blanks.
I can see now some structural flaws in this novel, as well as scenes that are redundant, or misplaced, or just missing. Some are well-written, some not so much so. Characters need to be tweaked, or added, or deleted, also . I'm tempted to basically start again, working top-down, rather than try to re-write. Any suggestions??
Is this a good time to also try out yWriter? And some sort of MindMapping tool?
