I am still following The Plot Whisperer and trying to plot out my NaNo piece before the rewrite. However, I am stuck. I have not printed off my work to read. Why? Because I’m scared! So I’m a few days behind on PlotWriMo due to this fear. I plan on sucking it up this weekend and reading it. But still…nervous!
In the meantime I have started a new story. (Stephen King and The Plot Whisperer both agree on starting a new project before going into rewrite of one you just finished). So with the blessing of a few Masters, I dove into one. And then I got a nesty case of insomnia the other night and started a completely different one! I know, I know, I’m weird. But I am more excited about this new story then the one I had started at the beginning of this month. So I’m putting that one on the back burner and delving into this one! *fingers crossed it’s as good as I hope it’ll be*
Also, I finally started reading The Raven Boys!! Love it so far! Check back for a book review of it soon!
I have decided to utilize December as my plotting month, before any editing or rewrite. I found The Plot Whisperer through Twitter (thanks for that!) and am on Day Six.
I’ve never tired to plot before. I only know the very basics to plotting in general. I’m more a write-as-you-feel person. So, this should be a great learning experience! And hopefully it will really be helpful come January when I take a deep breath and start that 2nd draft!
If you’d like to join in for PlotWriMo (whether or not you did NaNo), I encourage you to give it a try with me!
Here they are!
Looks like I’ve got a few more books to add to my Christmas list.
Divergent is my next read, so hopefully I can get Insurgent next! Also, The Mark of Athena! Might even try The Casual Vacancy.
What are you all going to try from this list?
