On to Today’s Ramblings:
I’m getting ready to dive back into my 1st draft, and I’m sooooo excited! In preparation for that I’ve been storyboarding/plotting (with Post-its) and now I’m going to do the same with 3X5 Cards! I learned about this great technique during WriteOnCon:
I love combining this with my Post-It wall. I like the wall, because there’s just something about seeing it all laid out, that’s just so darn inspiring! But I also like that the 3X5 cards are mobile, and a lot easier to shuffle around. So I’ll be combining the two techniques to create my own Frankenstein’s monster of Storyboarding and Plotting. I like to call it Plottyboarding.
You may have noticed that my word count has been kind of anemic this week! That’s mostly because I’ve been plottyboarding (see how I threw the new word in…nice) I’m currently on week 4 (day 22) of The 90-Day Novel, which means that I’ll be starting my 1st draft this week! I’ve been doing a lot of work on the lore/background of my story and characters. I really think that’s going to help me in writing my draft.
My plan is to double up a few days this week, take Friday off, and then start back into my 1st draft a week from today! I’m excited, and scared…but the more that I learn about my MC and her world, the more I want to see it come to life!
