Happy Hump Day, everyone! I’ve been busy all morning working on The Prophet and getting a lot accomplished. I’ve met all of my #Row80 goals except for the first 5000 words of The Prophet, and I’m inching closer.
* Setting is done
* Main Characters established
* Timeline created
* Antagonist motivations explored and finalized
* Character’s back stories done
* First 1000 words written
In the next week I want to work on the main conflicts and get going on writing. I do have my inciting incident and end game, and I’ll work on the turning points as I go.
I came across this great two-part post by Donald Maas at Writer Unboxed and wanted to share with you. If you haven’t read his book Writing The Breakout Novel, I highly recommend it. I question the value of some of the craft books, but this one is great.
In his posts The Elements of Awe, Maas talks about the factors that generate great word of mouth. Check them out!
How are your #Row80 goals coming?
