This year I am going to write a book. So, as I progress in this journey I hope to create posts that reflect on that in some way. I started research for this project over 2 years ago and just stopped for months and months. I just couldn’t get focused. I am hoping that blogging about it will keep me focused. So, January is “GO” month. My goal for January is to create some of the foundation for my jumping off point.
I have discovered that my writing methods are not linear or traditional. As I mentioned, I had started this project before but my efforts ground to a halt. I was trying to do a timeline, research, and character prep but no actual writing. I think that, at least at the beginnging, I do better working on what is in my head and smoothing it out and tying it together later.
How about you, do you have a set writing process?
