Well, here I am, one week into my challenge. I’ve actually really enjoyed this week, and it hasn’t been nearly as difficult to write every day as I thought. I confess I haven’t worked at all on my novel, which was the original goal of this blog, but I have been super busy. Also, kind of at a loss as to where to start. How, exactly, does one plan a novel? Do you start with characters, or plot, or setting, or backstory, or theme, or what? The ideas in my head are a jumble of all those ideas, and I don’t know how to begin culling them. Any advice from my faithful readers would be greatly appreciated. Plot seems to be my weakest point, thus far, but the rest of my schedule is very fun! I’ll probably be substituting poetry for plot on a fairly regular basis here.
One final note: I’m on East Coast US time, but Word Press marks everything 5 hours ahead of me on what appears to be Greenwich Mean Time (London Time). So, if it looks like I posted something a day late, it’s probably because I wrote after 7 pm my time and forgot to post date it so it shows the correct time. This is really bothering me, for some reason.
Please, tell me about your writing struggles and successes! Friday is to recognize our progress over the week.
