Where I am in the writing process:
I've put aside my Lilith story for the moment to start gearing up for NaNoWriMo. I'm slowly starting to work out a story idea that I'm getting excited about. I've been using the Snowflake method that I linked in a post earlier in the week, although I'm planning on skipping several of the steps that seem repetitive to me.
My current problem:
Procrastination. I'll do a day where I pound out 2400+ words of planning (character sketches, summaries, etc) and then won't type a single thing the next day. It makes it a bit hard to focus sometimes. I did however come up with what I think is a pretty cool title and signature for the forums on the NaNo site:
Allan Donque, a really gifted photographer that has most of his stuff on Flickr Creative Commons licensed.
My question this week:
The Snowflake method has you creating a spreadsheet of every scene in your book, and then writing at least a paragraph about each scene. The creator says you're likely to end up with a 50 page document. That seems like overkill to me, and is one of the reasons I'm adapting the method for me. When do you feel that outlining/planning becomes too much?
Have you signed up for my Small Packages Blogfest yet? I'm looking for blogs with 300 followers or less to take part in it. Review the guidelines and topic for November and spread the word to others!
