So, I spent most of this week planning a murder. It's one of the quirks of being a writer, we get to do fun stuff like that! One of my current manuscripts... (yes, my brain hates me and has refused to let me just work on a single manuscript) ...wasn't working as well as I wanted it. Thankfully, I had an epiphany and came up with a nice big partial plot change. However, due to this, I need to murder someone.
As my novel ideas have come screaming back like a furious banshee over the last few weeks, it got me thinking about the Stages of Writing. For those hardened writers who have been at it for ages, I'm sure you will see some familiarity here. For those newly joining us in the world of writing, welcome to what the journey will hold. 🙂
You’ve been daydreaming about your story for ages, your ideas have been fed, watered and bloomed quite nicely and you’re itching to really start writing. So, do you outline or just jump right in?
