Tonight I will start writing. I've never outlined a book so substantially and I'm hoping that by doing it, I'll be better able to stick to the shape I want. I think I'll be able to work in quite large chunks of the original draft too, in places, so I'm not quite starting from scratch (although the first chapter will be quite different).
I'm feeling good about this, and am going to aim to have the new draft completed by Christmas. That may be overconfident, but I like to have a deadline. Even if I don't meet it.
Do you like to set yourself deadlines? Do you meet them?
