I had a lovely thorough COMPLETE outline and I got about 14 chapters in and THE OUTLINE IS NO LONGER VALID. So that’s not very nice. I’m trying to rework my outline and brainstorm and figure out what I want. Well, I sort of know what I want, I’m just having SUCH A HARD problem getting my characters from A to B. (Actually probably something like L to M at this point.)
Because Dement is modern urban fantasy then I’m having a wee bit o’ trouble working around the technology and political aspects of it. Last week I finally went back and erased about two chapters because I realized part of my problem is I had flashbacked to some scenes I should have written out first hand. SO that is slight progress, but I’m still mostly blocked.
So the stage I’m at right now is: stuck.
BUT I’m actively doing some things to try and get my UNstuck and back on track to plotting this thing out, so I’m not (too) down about it.
Tomorrow: Describe your WIP with 5 verbs.
