I’m in a big hurry cause it’s so late–like 1:35 am CST. Staying up too late and sleeping too late, but still getting a lot done with my writiing.
I’ve been working on Holly Lisle’s Create a Plot Clinic. Last year when I first started the How to Revise Your Novel course I also did the free brief lessons on how to create a plot. This time, it’s the full Plotting course and I’m going through it as though I haven’t written the book yet. I’m using the characters from the first draft, the settings, and most everything else, but I’m also allowing any new stuff to attach itself to me. Once I’m finished with this course I will decide then what I should do next. There are still a few very short courses on creating settings, the language angle, and other stuff I want to explore first.
At this stage in the course, I’m working on fleshing out my characters, making note of anything that comes to mind. Then after this, there will be a lesson on what I can salvage from all the notes I wrote to put into the actual story. I’m looking for better than my usual writings and hopefully the story will be so catching that a reader will not be able to put it down before finishing it.
Pray for me. Perhaps the Lord will have mercy and inspire me to greater lengths.
