From Brain to Page

I've never developed a writing method or process.

I started writing when I was in high school, sticking to fan-fiction (mostly *NSYNC). I was never a planner. My stories were written in snatches of time in class, procrastinating homework. I didn't even plan school papers ahead (possibly why I was a B student in English...); I would just wait till the last minute and pull something out of my rear.

When I picked up writing again (mostly fan-fiction again) I stuck to the same old method. Just making it up as I went along. But that obviously isn't getting me anywhere, so I need to find my method.

This past NaNoWriMo, I started out sort of pantsing it. The idea was one that has been stewing for a few years so I knew what I wanted to do but I've never been able to get it out on paper. I thought I'd be able to knuckle down and get the story out this past NaNo but about halfway through, I was struggling.

So I decided that I would use the remainder of NaNo to find my method. Well, that didn't work. I didn't write anything else in November. 

I have been working on it though. And I might have found a method. We'll talk more about it over the next few posts.

See you Friday.

Hello

So let's give this blog thing a try again, shall we?

Along with restarting my personal and craft blogs (both linked in the sidebar), I'm also restarting this blog, my writing blog.

Although, it never really got started in the first place.

So this is going to be my space to talk about all things writing and (someday) publishing. Posts will go up on Tuesdays and Fridays.

See you Tuesday.
