Well, what a month. Apologies for being somewhat sporadic (I can’t use that word without thinking of Brittany Murphy in ‘Clueless’) in my postings but I’ve been travelling and stuff.
I zipped over to the homeland to surprise my mother on her 80th birthday. I was taking over cake, and champagne, and a new husband that she had never met before. I asked my brother if I needed to take anything else and he replied thoughtfully, “a cardiologist?” Luckily one wasn’t needed.
After a quick side trip to Portugal, we flew back into NC and tried to ignore the jetlag and get back to our lives.
For me that meant writing and attending WriteOnCon. Wow. If you didn’t attend – all the vlogs and presentations are still there… and it’s FREE J. It was fantastic.
I’m back to the grind – churning out a scene or so a day. After trying to write in a linear way – I found that for me (I have a limited attention span) it was easier to make a list of all the scenes I needed to write and then just pick and choose. It’s been working so far – but I’m interested in your method too. Do you write from the beginning through to the end of your WIP, or do you dive in and out of scenes like I’m doing right now? What works for you?
