So far this week, my writing process has been turtle slow, but it’s paying off. I went back and revisited some of Margie Lawson’s DEEP Character Analysis (courtesy of Jenny Hansen’s blog contest) and have been implementing in my writing. Some of you know The Prophet started as a Friday Flash piece, and I’ve been building from that. Since I plotted after I wrote the first couple of scenes, I decided to go back and flesh them out. I’m working through all that I’ve written so far to make sure the writing is strong and plot cohesive. This is also helping me get a feel for the characters again.
I’ve only managed about 2K since Sunday, but it’s quality writing I’m happy with. This approach is helping me remember why I love writing so much and why I’m so excited about this new manuscript.
Goals for Sunday Check In:
Finish going through the first chapters of The Prophet, implementing DEEP Edits.
Finish and post Thriller Thursday.
Wrap at least 5 of Grace’s Christmas presents. Somehow I got stuck with our gifts for her AND my parents, since they’re having Christmas with us this year. So I have a ton to wrap!
How is your week coming along? Are you racing to the ROW80 finish or turtling to the finish line?
