I finally started writing! Alert the media!!
I’ve been so wrapped up in coming up with my storyline, that I never once put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard…I guess). So last Thursday, I finally said, “screw it,” and just started writing. I was hoping that the idea may just come to me as the words started flowing and that is precisely what happened! I’m sure I’ll change the storyline numerous times along the way, but actually getting something down on paper is so completely gratifying. Now my mind is swirling with all kinds of ideas!
I actually loved doing it too! Thursday night, I could’ve stayed up until the wee hours of morning as the ideas just kept coming to me, but unfortunately, the 8-5 job doesn’t allow for that (insert frowny bratty face). Not to mention, those stupid Powerball numbers failed to listen to my instructions Saturday night. They’re so disobedient. Oh well, maybe one day I can make writing my full time job. One can dream, right?
Anyway, I am very excited about my ideas and can’t wait until it all starts coming together. I will, of course, keep you all up to date on my progress.
Also, now that I’m finally moving forward, I would love any suggestions on organization, structure, etc… I read something about a program called Scrivener’s that is helpful. Does anyone have any tips on this, or unique methods you use? As always, thank you!
