Whoopsie Daisy (and other Nonsense.)

I don’t know, seemed like a good day for an update. Hi everyone! I’ve been editing WOTS1 (still referring to them as separate books for now!) and realized a few days ago that I had WROTE THE SAME CHAPTER TWICE.

I’ve been editing WOTS1 (still referring to them as separate books for now!) and realized a few days ago that I had WROTE THE SAME CHAPTER TWICE.

They weren’t identical in words, but they were clearly the same chapter. Character wakes up in her place, gets mad, destroys a city, flies back. I mean it was same order and everything 😡 So now I have to figure out what SHOULD have been there instead. I’m guessing I got distracted at some point, or just really liked the idea of that chapter and forgot I wrote it.

I also ran into a bit of a snag where I’ve confused myself on something. I don’t know WHY my character is doing something, not in any way that I’ve portrayed so far. I’m not entirely certain I NEED a why but I have to wait for my readers to tell me if they also don’t understand.

I did figure out some more about my characters, though. Their motivations, personalities,  and whatnot. (You would think I would already know this with the books finished.)  I, also, finally separated what I wanted Asherah to be and what she actually is. Same with Lilith.

Anyway, I’m done rambling. Thanks for reading.

Wait…did I just title this ‘whoopsie daisy…’

    I had the exact same problem with my NaNoWriMo novel this year. Close to the end, I was scrolling through and realized that I wrote one of my early scenes twice. I wrote one version at the beginning of the month and one very close to the end. I ended up just keeping both for the moment. I’ll figure it out in January. Just wrote some extra words to make up for the mishap last month.

  2. I’m sure I wrote the same scene in this year’s NaNo novel several times, and – sadly – with different outcomes, so now I have to figure that out!

    I had a similar problem, was working on a rewrite and punched up a chapter. I really loved it! I was so into it that I forgot that in my new outline I take it a totally different direction. Facepalm! So now I won’t be using a lot of it, but it was still good writing so maybe it will find a home elsewhere, lol.

      I think I ended up using about half of the original chapter and half the double chapter and lost about 750 words between the two although now I’m missing a chapter instead of having an extra so that’s fun.

      Good luck with yours, I hope it finds a new home somewhere! 😛
