For my WIP, I'm pretty deep into the world building. It is hard, yet rewarding, work. I am surprised at how much work is actually involved in this process. I thought the first step would be putting together the outline and while that is coming to fruition, it is the world building I'm finding to be the time-consuming process I didn't see coming.
To practice writing, I entered Karen Hoover's Weekly Flash Fiction challenge. It is fun and I would encourage more people to get into it. Best of all, it only takes an hour of your time (it's in the rules). She just changed up the schedule and, unfortunately, it doesn't fit in with mine this week so I couldn't find time for another entry. I do look forward to entering more as my schedule opens up. For those who are into poetry, she also has a weekly poetry contest of the same vein.
And the result? I won! Well, I co-won. I tied with Rebecca Blevins so we have both won the following trophy for our blog:
I am planning a blog series soon to look at different ways to outline a story. I just read a book on story structure and I've seen, and mentioned previously, a few others. I would really like to explain, analyze, and discuss each method and hopefully get feedback from all of you good folks.
I noticed my "currently reading" page is out of date. I'll get that back to speed ASAP.
Thank you everybody for sticking around. I appreciate all of my followers!
