>I told myself I wasn’t going to do this again–try another method of writing, that is. But guess what? Yep, I’m doing it anyway. This time, I’m reading and working on the First Draft in 30 Days (by Karen S. Wiesner) method in an effort to improve my productivity. I love forms and spreadsheets. This book has that. First thing I did was sit down and re-create all the forms in my computer so I could read and fill out at the same time.
So far, I can see how doing all the preliminary work will give you insights and help with the actual scene brainstorming process. I kinda did this anyway, but in a more freeflowing style. So the first part is going pretty fast. I’m working on Taming The Tycoon, the first in my Hellion’s Heirs trilogy. Since the secondary characters show up in their own books soon, I’m paying special attention to the characters sheets.
You won’t see any huge upsurge in page count showing up on the sidebar for a couple weeks. Then I’ll be through the preliminary stuff and can start putting the scenes in order and will be able to tell you how it’s coming along. The goal is to have a rough draft in 30 days, a submittable body of work in 2-3 months.
I’ll keep you posted.
>Let me know if it works!!
>Carol, you’ve been too quiet. Hope that means you’re busy banging out that first draft!
