I am looking forward to my nanowrimo meeting at the fort erie public library.
Derick is not only a published author, but he has great advice to give to us!
I did the mind mapping for the novel differently this time.
Random scenes of what I’d LIKE to have in the book.
Then I sat down and started to number them in the order I thought they should go.
It worked until I got to Scenes 10, 11, 12.
It was LAME, the story wasn’t spicy enough for linny!
So I changed it, added two new endings to the story, actually three if I think about it.
I was finished my FIRST ending at 40,000 words.
Well that won’t do!
I needed more.
The second ending was at 45,000 words.
Not again, sigh, nope, I need more!!
Finally I get to 51, 177 words and I’m done, almost.
I realized there’s some KEY things i kind of forgot in the story, like something I began at chapter 8?
then forgot to finish it! lol
So I have to go back into the story and end all the trails, so many of them.
I can tell you this, the many twists and turns will keep you turning the pages. 🙂
