#SoCS Oct. 14/17… Well …

 

I haven’t done SoCS for a while, best of intentions, but…

Well,

last night I decided to start the novel. If you’ve read my meanderings, it’s the one I keep talking about writing. So, I stared at my monitor and then at my keyboard and then played a game. And then I read some blog postings and I wrote a poem. What I didn’t do was write a novel or even “the” to begin the novel.

Evidently I have no problem writing other things. I think maybe I need to write an outline. And maybe I need to get more than one scene written inside of my head before I decide to write said novel. Maybe I will write said novel for NaNoWriMo and kill two birds with one stone. (Why in the hell do people want to kill birds with stones? Why do people want to kill birds? Are birds really deserving of such a death?)

Sigh.

Any thoughts? I sure wish I had some.

  1. Sometimes writing down that one scene, even if it’s not the first one, will help the rest come. Starting is the hard part. ๐Ÿ™‚ Best of luck, Sascha.

  2. I don’t know if I weird for doing it, but I try and start at the end first. Once I figure out final event, then I go on to figure out how to keep my characters from getting there. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  3. Just start writing. Nothing bad will happen if you don’t get it right (write) the first time. First word, second word, third word… Before you know it, you have the first page. ๐Ÿ™‚
