Well I am going to go back and start using the write practice again. I am still writing my story. Well second draft.. sort of. It still feels like draft one because I am doing so much writing in it, there really is all writing at this point and no editing yet. That’s because my original was set during a different time of my character’s life, and had become too long and draggy because of it. Anyways because I have been going a little slow with it, I have decided to add to my practice a short daily write, which I will probably start posting here.
I am pretty sure my writing is not great at the time, but I need to ignore that for now and get back into the habit of writing every day. So I will be posting something probably each day, probably very short.
Anyway about the book I am much happier with it, starting at a later point. But it is also hard because there are Still some big questions I am going through. I have found this basic outline on the web and I am going to use it to map all my scenes out and I think it will help me immensely:
- three act structure.
- nine checkpoints: a sentence per check point
- break check point down to scenes.
I had been kind of going off memory from the original to write so far. Outlining is one of those necessary evils I guess. But part of me always is tempted to go without an outline. I don’t know.
I think adding a picture to a blog is helpful… so I will have to think of a picture… oh hum.. how about..:
