Okay, so the last WIP I started didn’t get such great feedback from the CP’s. (No, I’m not trying to make ya’ll feel bad – I need honest, unbiased feedback.) I was only 3 chapters in, so put it on the back burner. Here I thought I had a great plot and subplot all worked out, likeable characters, and all. Coupled with the comments I got on KiTA (written to the same line), I’m apparently trying to write to the wrong line – or something. It’s downright depressing, but I’m fighting to stay positive.
Started two new WIP’s this week. Both will be Desires.
I have cast pictures picked out, basic plot line worked out and have written what appeared in my head. 21 pgs all told, and the characters are still talking. Still, as I told Linda tonight, I need to stop writing and actually work out the plot, trying to find that imaginative, elusive ‘twist’ all the editors talk about.
Sometimes this writing thing is like banging your head against a wall.
>Writing IS like banging your head against a wall. Great analogy. But when you write what you love, it gets easier. (Well, maybe. LOL)Way to go on the new manuscripts. 21 pages is a great start. And hey, you might just turn into a pantster like me. (Shhh….don’t tell anyone).
