Day 2


Ok, I was setting out to expand the outline today. I didn’t do so well. Even keeping the expansion scant, I got too much into writing the story and made the outline of each chapter way too big. Dialogue would jump into my head and come out my fingers. My usual chapter is about 1,600 words, and the outlines for a few of these chapters are over 1,000 words. So I wrote about 10,000 words just to outline 14 chapters. Insanity. I might as well just start writing the book.

I’m sure I’ll appreciate the over-work over the next few days, but it was frustrating today. So I exported the outline into Scrivener…

At least I know exactly what’s going to happen, when it’s going to happen, and how everyone will react when it does. Tomorrow is the first of the massive writing days.

Wish me luck,
