Camp NaNo Prep: The Outline

Camp NaNo Prep: The Outline

Camp NaNoWriMo Prep Series:

Part 1: The Idea

Part 2: The Characters

Part 3: The World

 

Before we start, here’s a disclaimer: I’m not an outliner. Well, not a hardcore outliner, at least. I do find that I do better when I have some sort of a framework to go off of, though, so in this post I’m going to just share with you a couple of methods I’ve used that have worked for me.

The Chapter-By-Chapter Outline

This is the method I used with The Heart of the Baenor, and it’s pretty simple. Continue reading “Camp NaNo Prep: The Outline”

The 7777 Writing Tag

The 7777 Writing Tag

So today’s post is weird because I ended up spazzing and scheduling Alleyn Everlind’s interview today, except… I’ve already interviewed him. And since it’s already Wednesday and I didn’t feel like coming up with a different character to interview, I’m stealing the 7777 tag (with permission!) from Alexa over at Summer Snowflakes.

Ze Rules:

  3. Copy the next seven paragraphs…. and paste them on your blog for THE WORLD to read

The Language of Worlds Link-Up #1

The Language of Worlds Link-Up #1

My snippet for today wasn’t going to work (turns out I know the random story even worse than I realized. That’s going to need to be fixed), but I saw this link-up yesterday from a couple of bloggers I follow and decided it would be fun to join in. (Snippet Sunday will be back next week, I promise.) The image below links to the original post, where you can also join in if you’d like. :) Continue reading “The Language of Worlds Link-Up #1”

Snippet Sunday: Unstoppable

Snippet Sunday: Unstoppable

Just a little bit of info on the Unstoppables before we start: They can talk telepathically to one another (and only one another), so dialogue in italics is telepathic speech. It’s part of the tech that went into them when they were experimented on, and it was meant to link it to their handlers as well but Grantech didn’t have a chance to finish it before they escaped.
