Sight Is Not The Only Sense

I can feel my brain focusing in a way it hasn’t in a long time. I forgot how tiring it can be, delving deep into another world. Today I continued to write up location descriptions using the basic prompt of our five senses. I tend to focus too much on what is seen and ignore the other senses. The prompts force me to be more creative.

Using The Research

So I finished off my location research today and started writing a brief description for each. So far I’ve written two and am half way through the third. I think once I’ve done the locations I’m going to write a solid description for each character.

Creating Order From Chaos

It only actually took about and hour and a half to compile a solid plot outline from the numerous scene breakdowns I’ve written over the past year or so.

Feeling happily confident I can get back on with writing now. I’ll extract the good parts of previous drafts, revise and redraft until I’m somewhat content.

So Many Pieces Of Paper

I’ve been trying to figure out where on earth I am in my novel, at this point there are so many revisions it’s a bit terrifying to delve back in. I think I have somewhat managed to puzzle the versions apart. Now it’s time to un-pick exactly which plot line I am following.

Sticky notes, space and a tsunami of paper led to some vague form of clarity. I am religiously staying to my schedule and as soon as I’d unravelled the mess it was time to take a break and then start something new.

At least now all my notes are in a row and I have a good starting off point for next time. If I’m sticking to my routine, that should be tomorrow!

Word Count Update

Getting back into the swing of things I’m writing my wordcount for the day. First off I started a draft for next Sunday’s Crafty Sew & So’s blog, all about the upcoming Moneta Party.

Secondly, I started writing a post for Today I Made… all about a failed attempt at a dress. It needs a few pictures and polishing up before I post it, it may well be coming along in the next couple of days.

Renewing Those Forgotten Goals

There was a plan to have finished revising my novel by Christmas. I’m still lingering somewhere around the 15000-word mark. Any writing I’ve been doing has been blogging for Crafty Sew & So.

Delving into sewing projects leaves very little time to write. It’s incredibly satisfying completing projects, then parading about the place in my wears. Having a tactile thing to hold for my hard work is a world away from sitting at my computer screen or scribbling in a notebook.

So I am determined to chisel out that time for writing again and renew my efforts to documents said writing in this blog. but tonight I’m going to settle down with my

However, tonight I’m going to settle down with my cats, a cup o’ tea and a couple of homemade biscuits.
