I always wondered why outlines work for some people but not for me.
I think I cracked the code.
I had a story idea that’s been floating around for a while, six weeks something like that.
A week and a half ago I got out my notebook and started plotting.
I’ve never enjoyed it until this last week and I figured out why.
Before I’d always had either a finished draft or a few chapters written.
This time, I let it breathe. Gave it some room and sat back and let my mind wander on the story.
What I’ve found is I’m pretty good at it and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
I’m still working through the outline and hope to start drafting in October
I’m not sure I’ve ever had this much fun writing.
I’m still doing the same thing(discovering the story) but it’s more intricate and I feel better about what the final product will be.
It’s going good and I’m having fun.
