Hey, all! Hope everyone who's writing for NaNo is moving along swimmingly. So far, I have 10K words, which isn't near where I was this time last year, but I'm not stressing.
In addition to the 10K words, I have a pretty decent logline and I just wrote out all my scenes on index cards so I can move them around if necessary. In between writing and daily duties, I'm reading James Scott Bell's Plot and Structure. It's excellent. I've been putting the exercises to good use.
Here are a few questions I found helpful ...
1. My lead is a ______ and his/her objective is ______.
2. He/She is confronted by ______ who opposes him/her because ________.
3. The ending will be a knockout because _________.
Hopefully, these will help you if your plugging away like I am.
Have you read Plot and Structure? How's your WIP coming along? Anything to share?
