Today’s Scribbling: Novel Writing

Attack of the muse – thought I might work on this chapter today and tomorrow, wound up finishing it today. Also wound up reworking some character relationships, which could make things interesting, and created some character who I hope to flesh out a lot on rewrites. And killed some characters off. I think I am kind of bloodthirsty, after all.

Today’s Scribbling: Novel Planning

So I figured out a new way to plan out bridging sections. Take a piece of paper. In one corner, write where your plot is right now, and in the opposite corner, write where you want it to end up. Then fill in the diagonal with the steps from A to B (from either direction), and branch off with the details of those steps and the questions involved. Bang, a game plan.
