CHAPTER FIVE: Words per day...

So I am going to ramp up my writing in order not to let it slide just because I am busy. My goal is 1000-2000 words a day. I can take Sunday off but outside of that... must do at least this to keep on track. I am reading a great book on writing and getting some good information.

Some things to think about:
Writing about a situation rather them a plot. I have never thought of this and looking back on some of my stuff I guess I do this naturally. Put the guy or gal in a situation and see what they do to get out of it... The plot will come as you write and like this writer I write not knowing what is going to happen next, I find this more fun and very cool to watch the story unfold before your eyes.

Try this:
Put someone in a situation like a man trapped in the woods up in a tree by a angry bear. Start writing and see what happens, see what your character will do to get out of the spot. And be honest... no lies, make sure you don't superimpose what you want him to do but let him do what he will.

You never know what you will get...

  1. Huh, I never thought of that either. Good advice.
    Speaking of advice, PLEASE take this: change your background to a lighter color! I can't really see or read anything to well and I'd really like too.
    Tell averyone that I love them all! <3 And miss ya'll too.
    Keep up the writing! :)
