I am at the messy nearly-end of my first draft and as I am revising the beginning, [for the 23rd time], I am seeing stuff that I need to put in and a lot I need to cut out. But as I look further into the book I am frankly scared. My no-planning/write whatever comes to you technique worked fine with previous [shorter] works but here I am 70'000 words into this fantasy and it is getting pretty chaotic in the middle and I havn't figured the end out properly yet. in the past it all kinda worked out as I went along, but this time round I feel like this book might eat me whole.. i would plan it all out like a good girl, honestly I would- but i don't actually know enough of a story when I start it to plan anything! So here I am, trying to get the courage up to sift through all the crap and find the book worth keeping in there. So, what I'm realy saying is how do those of you who don't plan your books pull it all together at the end when it's a big hot mess?
