Ending a novel: following the progression of a novel from concept to finalization | Bücher
As Wyl Menmuir sits down to work on his first novel, it was clear to him that it was something that many wanted but few achieved. I' ve met too many folks who wrote half a novel," he says. Menmuir used everything he could think of. He started a MA letter for which the novel was his theory.
And he used softwares to stop his from accessing it. This resulted in the booker-longlisted novel The Many and thanks to the information he gathered via the application, we have a seldom insight into the processes that made the novel a real thing. Some of the following extracts are a compilation of the comments Menmuir wrote in the application and the number of words he recorded in different places.
Early on, Menmuir realized that he needed every instrument at his command to complete his first novel. As an educated reporter, he chose to work better with a time limit and aimed to write 500 words a day, five times a month. If Menmuir had kept to his self-imposed time limits, the 44,242-word novel he finally composed could have been typed in just 124 days:
With only nine abandonment elapsed, he had his first realization that his 500 words a minute target might not work. Though he didn't know it then, it would actually take a year, 10 month and two whole nights to finish the novel.
So, what's behind making a novel? Overcome self doubtThe information Menmuir gathered about the application is full of causes of self-doubt and anxiety that what he wrote was simply not good enough. "Sometimes when I reread things and surprise myself when it was better than I thought," he says now as he thinks about the ups and downs he has been experiencing while he has written.
There were other, more intimate times that kept him alive: his little girl who sat with him to type, or a painting he got from his cousin who wrote his own novel after being influenced by his uncles. "These things really, really helped," says Menmuir. While some diversions - such as readings and strolls - eventually turned out to be prolific, others, like soft copy, tend to disrupt the typing progression.
MeMenmuir voluntarily acknowledges that the use of digital content and other on-line attempts has been a permanent distraction: "I' m going to do just about anything but type, because most things are simpler than writing," he says. The appeal of on-line entertainment was so great that he used the application to combat the technology: an application named SelfControl was blocking him from using softcapture when he was actually to work.
As many other authors, he says that the works of other authors help to stimulate his own. "WriteTrack, it's been about 25 and a half years since my last penitence. After a pause, he made a journey to Totleigh Barton to hear a few words from the novel." "You live with a novel every single working-day.
You live with the whole environment, the people that are racing around your neck. One only has to get away from the intensities of the whole, because I found it a very intensive one. Milestones CelebrateMenmuir has reached its first major landmark of 10,000 words three month after the start of the trial.
