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.
