My reading has slowed down a bit this week. I am up to 6 books read, with about 3 more before I have to hit up the library again.
We have had some truly awesome thunderstorms this week, which, unfortunately, means I have been battling the notorious Calgary Headache. It’s worth it, though. I love storm season. And until I can get back to the island and watch the rage come in off the ocean, I have to take what I can get.
Also, my slowly developing novel outline should be ready for me to start writing the first draft in about a week. I am so enamoured with this story that I have decided that I am not going to wait until NaNo to begin. With November only a few months away, I can probably use the insanity to help me hit the finish line. I have a bad habit of getting to the final climax, and then dropping off instead of finishing out the end of the novel. I think I have a penchant for cliffhangers.
One thing I am finding really entertaining, is step five of the Snowflake method. Specifically, writing the story line from the point of view of each of the main characters. Since I only skimmed the page last year, I didn’t notice this part of the step the last time I used it. I think this is now my favourite step, and having only three main characters, I am going to be a little sad when it’s over.
That said, it might motivate me to try writing the novel itself from multiple POVs. Those stories are great fun, if done correctly. We will see, I suppose.
Well, coffee is calling, and I have one more short MC POV to write. See you on the flip side!
