Sunshine- I took your advice. I killed off an aunt. Technically, I killed off two, because one is dead in the story anyway. But you know what I mean. I’ve been outlining in all my spare time and I am getting a decent plot together.
I think I have also made the plot a little more clear, which is good. I have about 10 pages of outlining so far, and I am not done just yet. I think I am about halfway. I
Its really amazing how a plot can change and how you see you character’s moving.
I also took some of Spin’s advice and added some happy stuff in there, because all depression all the time won’t make for a bestseller either ;)
I think I also have a working title “Hang a Shining Star” which is part of a lyric from “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” I wanted something holiday-ish that still meant something to the plot.
Our group is going to meet this weekend at a Café in our area. I am looking forward to meeting all the different people. We have everything from a high school person to a Christian radio DJ (I have a feeling we’ll be really in tune with each other…haha) Actually, when I posted in out forum to ask if anyone else had any plot ideas, Mr. DJ told me that he doesn’t believe in even thinking about a plot idea before the 1st. I think he’s nuts. I told him I have to plan a little (okay, a lot) or I won’t get it done. I’m a planner.
On a totally unrelated note, you’ll notice I figured out how to link up. If I linked to you and you mind, let me know. Otherwise, hooray! I figured it out. About time too, I think.
Well, I am off to work. (Meaning, getting back to work, since I am already here.) I hope everyone is having a good morning so far.
