National Novel Writing Month bombed on me again this year. I know there are two weeks left, but I have lost my story. The characters just don't want it to go any further at the moment. I had started one story just to have that stop and then started one other story just to have that stop as well. Ka-Blam! Writer's Block. I did get 10k written though! 4k more than I did last year! YAY!
Luckily, I am breaking down the walls of that block and decided to rewrite my very first manuscript. I'm adding more chapters, more plotlinse and completely re-outlining the story. I believe it will bring out more of my characters personalities and show the storyline in a better light.
So, I'm working on that re-outline, and have decided to also just outline the rest of my story ideas. I'm no good at outlining, but I'm going to just get all these outlines done and out of the way. That way, I can write my stories.
And so with my rewriting and outlining, I will be able to go out and reword things and recycle my favorite scenes into the newer version. It's going to be a lot of work, but I'm glad that I have a group that cheers me on. Thanks WD peeps! You know who you are!
Off for the day, hopefully I can update it more often now that I've quit Nano.
