The sense of community here is once again offering me a sense of buoyancy during the uber-tough revisions through which I've been wading for what feels like much too long.
So today's going to be an intense writing day for me. Want to get intense with me? Share what you'll be working on and we'll have a collective pool of writing energy and I'm-so-not-alone-ness from which we'll all benefit.
Gotta feel the love!
And while we're all gooey and schmoopy, let's share some indignity over the blog post I read yesterday that claimed, in no uncertain terms, that a writer MUST WRITE AN OUTLINE FIRST in order to successfully complete a novel. We've talked about this before, about how we all work differently. I shared my plotcard journey and its effectiveness. Many of you shared your own techniques.
I've just got to say: How can anyone claim that THERE IS ONLY ONE RIGHT WAY TO WRITE?
No, I'm not posting the link. It doesn't deserve such attention. (Wow, I felt like Lady Catherine du Bourgh there.)
So go on. Be indignant with me. And then get to work! I'll see you all on the Crazy Monday that awaits us.
Oh yes. I'm absolutely certain it's going to be crazy. Send chocolate.
