My Indy Journey – Day 28

Well the back is feeling better today, though I may have to lay down to do my editing. Or maybe I'll just skip it and read.

Here's the stats:

Now I Knew You: 1,440 words written. 38,100 words total. Two days ahead of schedule!

Scorpion Summer: I just read Randy Ingermanson's new book about the Snowflake Method. I've read about it before but never really put it to use. I write in a similar fashion, so I gave it another look with the new book (which I highly recommend…only $2.99). I was thus inspired to layout a Microsoft OneNote file with his 8 steps. One step for each tab and a page for the different characters and scenes. So I'm working through that now to finish up plotting Scorpion Summer. Shouldn't take me more than a month since I've already got quite a bit done. This will just organize it and force me to go back and fill in some holes. I did add one tab for the Moral Premise. I'm a firm believer in that. That book is over there on the right. Another must-have for the serious author. Randy talks about it in his book but doesn't have a step for it (what's up with that Randy?).

If you're interested in my OneNote template, shoot me your e-mail address and I'll send the link.

Okay, my back is complaining. Time to wrap this up and lay down.

Until tomorrow. Write big or stay home.

Oh, and don't forget to sign up for the newsletter so you can get the #AngelWarz series. It's gonna be awesome. I promise.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
