Just because I KNOW that outlining / pre-planning doesn’t really work for me, doesn’t stop me from continuing to seek…. THE SECRET FORMULA for writing the best possible thing that I can during the 3 Day Novel Contest. Or any time.
After alla that blather yesterday about how formulas just don’t work for me, I found myself cruising the interwebs at 2am this morning and returning to this tasty tidbit….
Cuz…. hey… there is always stuff to learn. Right?
So if you’re working on a QUEST or a CAPER type story … there might just be something you can grab from the article and add to your box of writing tools.
And for those who like pictures with their Secret Formulas, here’s a WIKI on…
And for those of you who’d like to peruse a series of posts and be introduced to a rather WONDERFUL blog … you should check out the Brainstorming series of posts over on my pal Bill Patterson’s blog. Here’s the first post…
And, as for me and Mz Musey… we are stepping away from the typer for a bit to eat some chicken noodle soup and maybe watch an episode of Firefly or something.
Will this be the story that breaks my long long LONG silence and lack of submissions.
What I do know is THIS IS THE WAY I AM GETTING READY for the contest. By … writing. Stretching muscles. Moving the pen across the page.
Feels darned good.
Hmm… maybe THAT is my Secret Formula for crafting a well-made story.
Hope you’re having a great day of scribbles and dreams.
go easy ~p
