A funny thing happened yesterday..

Man, I’m hoping this is a sign of things to come.

I wrote just under 500 words yesterday. And it felt good. Like really good. Rereading it this morning, I’m still excited about what’s there on the page. I worried that I might hate it but actually I don’t – plot ideas are even popping into my head like crazy and that hasn’t been the case for a quite some time. :o)

Another writing friend of mine spoke recently of plotting out her entire novel on Post-it notes that were stuck on the wall in front of her writing space. I fell in love with this idea (thankyou Tanya!) and think this may be the thing to help me get the bones of my story ‘nailed down’ before I start to flesh it out.

So. *deep breath* I’ve finally made a start and now it is recorded for posterity (and accountability!) here.

    Good news in this post, Sarah! Have you organized your post-it notes yet? I hope they are done neatly and in perfect chronological order. Yay for getting the words on paper and having it here to inspire you onwards. *claps*

    *coughs* Not sure how neat they'll be, but I'm working on it, Miss. LOL.

    Thanks for your support, hon – having a 'plan of attack' seems to be helping.
