So, yeah, I've been aware of this little "issue" for a few years now - I'm excellent at spewing out those first drafts and I even enjoy the revision process. But despite having written ten (10!) novels and one novella so far, and having many more rough drafts waiting to be completed, you'd think I might've got at least one publishable by now. Even if I had to publish it myself, which I am definitely open to.
I'm definitely guilty of being seized by that shiny new idea and running with it. This happens at least twice a year, actually, since I participate in NaNoWriMo and BuNoWriMo each year (November and June). So, basically, it's inevitable that I will write two new novels every year, or at least one and work on other projects during June, which leaves a little less time for revision of existing drafts (not to mention completing all my unfinished novels). I think last year I planned to have a year of revision, and it was the same this year. And I must say I have done a fair bit of revision, including a total rewrite of one novel. And yet I don't feel that I'm in a much different position now than I was two years ago. Except I have more rough drafts in need of editing. ;)
So, in short my problem has never really been
And I'm certainly not complaining about the fact that I seem to have never-ending inspiration. But I have to say I do actually want to publish something, and this does not appear to be the way to do it. ;)
