Keep Me Accountable - Day 4

Not much happening in the way of expanding my manuscript and adding words. In the Literal Sense.
However, I am working on the Hero's Journey, by Christopher Vogler and using this to develop the path my character's take. More on that later.

Do you really want to hear about the tools I use to push my story forward? More on that later...friday.

Finished a mini-storyboard on my second story in the series proposal I'm writing. Now to write those paragraphs into the proposal, then to start cutting words (not ideas) back out. Conciseness is the name of the game.

I'm getting ready to go work on revisions for my chapters 7 & 8. My son is doing his homework and I'm doing mine. Makes me feel good. I can do this.

Dianna--yes--you can do this!! My word count is lagging terribly this week. Will check in Friday with my piddly word count.
But I'm helping a friend with revisions...I'm blogging..trying to build readership. I find it hard to write in the evenings, but I may have to start.

Dianna, I am definitely going to try the storyboard. I just need a place to set it up where little hands won't pull it down ;)

Lindi, good luck on writing at night. My mind starts turning off about 5pm, LOL.

I try to put myself in "their" shoes or I base the character on someone I know. It makes it better for me to imagine what they do and would be like.
Blessings, Joanne
