I'm back in the writing trenches post graduation! Woo. Some of you may remember me asking followers about their writing methods a few weeks back. I've finally chosen one to try out! I have never had a CP read over my manuscript chapter by chapter as it's written, but it seems like a very interesting idea. Plus a great way to catch any issue before it gets out of control! :) The lovely Kelly Hashway also mentioned writing out a full blown synopsis for your book before writing anything down. (I've never been a HUGE plotter but figure I'm doing so many new things in my life post graduation (I learned how to shuck oysters and got to actually drive an ATV--rather than ride as a passenger) that I may as well tackle my writing from a new point-of-view. Which is exactly what I recommend. In life our writing, relationships, work-life etc. can become stagnant. Sometimes we just gotta shake things up a bit. Just taking a side step and looking at life or our books from a different POV can mean everything and can get our mojo's flowing.
Here's some great insight into the The Three Act Structure that I received from Beth Fred. Thus far, it has been quite helpful! :)
