Finding a New Story to Tell

  • Post category:Writing

It has been a bit of a crazy month and my latest Novel_in_90 fell by the wayside much more rapidly than I feared.

The main fault, I think, was starting with an established storyline. I spent a good bit of time cat-waxing over trying to get everything to match up well with what had gone before. (Sadly an even larger chunk of time was spent trying to track down all of the files in which ‘what had come before’ were saved.)

So this time I’m going to start with a blank page and slightly more organized intentions.

I’ve plotted out an hour each morning in which to get the 750 words done, and a bit of time in the evening to format it properly for posting. This attempt will be a bit more linear and thus an entertaining read (I hope) for anyone who wants to follow the madness.

Now I’m off to setup the treadmill-laptop for the first of the four 15 minute writing sessions I hope to get done today. We’ll see how the wordcounts roll…
