I am definitely doing things backwards; after writing 100K, I am now going back to do all the planning, outlining and character backstories.
But I needed to do it this way to figure out the Story before I do the Crafting.
Completely forgot to post last night!
Last night was the Night of Manuscripting Madly (NOMM), so I was at an overnight writing event (on Zoom) from 5pm till 9am this morning.
I crawled into bed at 7am this morning, but I passed 100K!
No lie, I’m starting to feel the strain. I’ve been taking this as a sprint when I should have been taking it as a marathon.
I’ve got to take this much slower when I continue writing this after November.
My story is in 1st person POV, but I find myself re-writing a lot of my chapters from other character’s POV to figure out what’s going through their heads.
It’s a fun way to learn more about my characters.
