A new novel of mine! I’ve learn so much since I was writing True Freedom back in NaNo of 2011. Writing technique is coming slowly to me, and I’m learning about story structure and other things.
So this novel is one I am going to stick with. I am very much a plot-first writing. I don’t do well with not knowing where I am going or how it’s going to end. I ponder my ideas long before I start, and then I set it down to a detailed plan with a specific ending.
This is what I am doing with this novel. If I know where to go, I can finish it.
I should have explained this ages ago. I guess I didn’t. 😛 Oh well.
True Freedom is a writing project I have set aside for now. With much headdesking and wanting to pull my hair out, I decided this was best.
Why did I do this? Well, there are several reasons.
1. Major plot issues.
I went into this story hardly knowing where I was going and not knowing very much about story structure. It had more then a few plot issues.
I know this blog has been dormant of late, but I’m working to fix that. Busyness can take over at times, but I’ll still try to post as frequently as possible. You can expect posts with more about my writing, some poetry, and possible some theological thoughts soon. 😀
Here is a picture I made with the logline for my novel, True Freedom. (For those who are wondering what a logline is, like I was before I found a thread about them on http://www.holyworlds.org/fantasy , it’s a one-sentence description of your novel.) My logline picture is a wonderful reminder of my WIP, to remember where this story is going in the first place. To remember to work on it. So that I can possibly get it published one day. Yay! See how motivational logline pictures can be? 😉
