My sweet friend Shantelle Mary tagged me for this, and I was quite pleased at the thought. Thank you, dear! <3
1. Dust-bunnies and Plot-bunnies: Reorganize Your Writing Goals (Or Make New Ones)
I'm actually going to skip the first question, if you will forgive me. *cough*
Because I really don't have any writing goals. lol
I'm really to busy to set a certain goal, so I write whenever I have the time, or whenever the 'genius burns' as Jo would say.
2. Which Stage Are You At? Expound!
a. Remodeling layouts (planning the story)
b. Painting the walls in colorful hues (writing)
c. Polishing the windows and scrubbing the floors and putting flowers in vases (editing)
d. Blueprints (not to the cleaning or remodeling yet … just drawing up plans for the very beginning inklings of a story)
e. Some combination of those things (cleaning out a closet)
Hmm...... I'd definitely say E.
I am not a very organized writer. AT ALL.
I plan the story, at the same time as writing, but then I also go back and edit what I last wrote, plus I have the 'blueprints' for the second book which I keep scribbling, even when I tell myself I have to finish book number one FIRST!
So.... yeah. No wonder I get overwhelmed. *chuckle*
But that's the way I roll, I guess.
3. Treasure From the Back of the Closet (Share one to three snippets you love!)
I wrote this once when I was feeling starry-eyed and 'dreamy', and although I never wrote it with the intentions of it being used in one of my novels, I do have an idea which book it could be used in.
This from my novel, (I may change the title?) I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, and this is from a very sad part in the character's life, if you can't tell.
But don't get too down! It all turns out, all right in the end. *wink*
I wanted to show just how much the loved ones of service men go through, waiting and praying for their loved ones to come home.
And they don't always do.
Okay, guys, I promise this novel isn't all gloom and doom.
But maybe the hurt and sadness in my characters flows so much easier?
3.5. Bonus: Do Some Actual Spring Cleaning of Your Writer Self! (and share a picture!)
yes, I stole this from Daminika. So sorry
This is where I draw, write and sew.
My aunt and uncle gave me this desk recently, and it has made things so much neater in my room.
No more pencils and blending sticks just floating around.
Not to mention the piles of scrap material. (it's hiding inside, plus the sewing machine)
Well, that was fun!
I hope you enjoyed, even if I made my book sound sad, drear, and full of sorrow. *ahem*
