Last Friday, you had some good things to say about the right motivations for killing off a character.
Here's a great blog post on the subject by our own Petre Pan. In fact, I've kept the tab open all week so that her words of wisdom would be available to me as I write. (I'm still in the thick of it, making changes that will potentially lead to Character B's death instead of Character A. What odd lives we lead, right?)
Thank you, Petre dear!
So it's been a while since we've chatted about how to PLAN a novel. (As in, are you a plotter or a pantser?) You long-timers have watched me morph from an unabashed pantser to an I-will-never-write-a-novel-without-a-beat-sheet-again diehard. What is your approach?
Mind you, I'm not looking for "there is a right way to do this". I expounded on that a few years ago. It's important to find a writing process that works for us. And I believe it's also important to be open to change and growth, instead of digging our heels in and whining, "No! I'm doing it THIS way!"
Share your process! This is how we learn from each other. And if you're in a stuck place in your current WIP, maybe a glimpse of the way someone else plots will inspire you and lead to un-stuckness.
As always, looking forward to your comments!
