Upon searching my blog for a new title so I don’t repeat myself, it’s quite embarrassing that I found around 20-30 posts announcing that I was planning my latest novel idea. Of course, with me often having outbursts of self-doubt, the idea never lasts long. However, my idea at the moment has lingered in my mind for about six months now, the idea won’t disappear unless it is planned and written. In this week’s life update, I can announce that I have begun planning my book!
Although I have said that I’ve given up on previous ideas, I have learnt something each time. In particular, I’ve learnt that I’ve never been a fan of professional planning with Excel spreadsheets and so forth. So now, I develop my main idea until it becomes a fully stretched synopsis for my book, then I have a greater idea of my plot.
It is this which I have been doing at the start of this week. I have one side of the story planned, so now it is the other side! I remember saying that my creativity stalled and that I had writer’s block, but now I feel inspired and eager to develop the plot further. I can’t wait to write!
