How can I keep writing? I've done a first draft of a novella one month ago and now I'm rewriting everything, doing all from the zero. Some points of the plot I'll keep but others require that I change the structure so much that I don't know if I can cope with the new complexity that things are taking. I also know that it will take me a while rewriting and drafting so many times that I can't conceive if I'll really finish at the beginning of February. Why didn't you tell me that was so hard to be a writer?
The fact that you're actually doing major rewrites is good. A lot of people starting out writing only want to do grammar edits and minor line by line stuff after writing a long-ish first draft. Just remember to not overwrite your save files for the first, you may have some things you want to go back to after the second draft. Just save it as a second document. I learned the hard way.
But it's a novella; it wasn't made to take so much time. I started to write it in december of 2015 and planned to finish now, in beginning of 2016, writing everyday. The first draft is good, some friends read and said that have pieces good and pieces bad, but I feel that something is missing, something with the characters and the theme in the plot.
It's about a guy that takes a candy and it changes the way that he perceives reality, realizing that he is a mere character of a fiction. Because of it he goes to a parallel world where he encounters his author, and ask him to rewrite his story to change the mistakes of his life. But the more he changes it the more strange reality and fiction becomes, and weird things start to appear in his world.
So I just have to accept that will cost me more time than I thought?
