Okay, another day, and I'm back to the table. I've been busy all weekend, between everyday life and things that can't wait so I can write, write, write.
Come on BRING IT TO THE TABLE. I want to ask how many of you get hung up in the blogging and twittering and lose track of time writing?
I've caught myself doing that a lot these past two weeks, or has it been a month.
I am writing the sequel to HAWAIIAN MIDNIGHT HOUR.
I purchased Randy Ingermanson and Peter Economy's WRITING FICTION FOR DUMMIES. It has been most interesting. Even more interesting is Mr. Ingermanson's "Snowflake Method." I purchased his program to help me with preparing my story ahead of time, supposedly saving me a lot of extra hard work and fewer rewrites.
I am going to try this new system and see if I can improve on my time and rewrites by putting everything down through the "Snowflake Method" first.
I will give anything a try that will make my time more frugal.
I certainly am not a Dean Koontz, at least not yet, but I do write the way he does, as far as starting a story in the beginning and not stopping until the end, then going back for the rewrites. A lot of writers do not outline before writing, and are very successful at it.
I say whatever "floats your boat." However, I am very open-minded to new methods in order to find what will make my boat float more efficiently. Thus, tonight, I would like to know how you write and what methods work best for you? Thanks for your comments. BRING IT TO THE TABLE. See you soon.
