Hmmm. All evening I've been running this crazy idea through my head. I've kind of planned a twist for Varda all along. But now I've come up with a new twisted twist. If my storytelling skills are up to it, it's going to be a really fun tale. Varda may not agree, but heck, who's writing this thing anyway? But I need to get it worked out properly before I get going down this rabbit hole, so I'm going to work on outlining and planning for the rest of the week. That's not my style, so it will be a bit of a challenge. F it works out though, the payoff will be terrific.

Outlining and planning never seems to work out of me. I tried it with my 3rd book and by chapter 4 was off in such a completely different tangent, it turned out to be pointless.

The sad thing is I have to re-write the first 4 chapters so that it works with the rest of the story. Oh well, good luck. You are definately more organized then I am, so it should out good for you.

"You are definately more organized then I am" if only that were true, Theadra.
One day I'll post a photo of my desk to prove the point.

I have issues with outlining and planning my writing too. Back when I was writing all sorts of English-major-y papers, it was a sign of real trouble when I felt compelled to write an outline--that really only meant I was hopelessly stuck.

I don't think I've ever had any piece of writing end up remotely close to any outline I've ever made. In high school and early college composition classes, when the research writing process was highly structured, I just reverse-engineered my outlines. (Dang...probably I shouldn't admit that, considering I spent a couple of years telling students NEVER to do that.) :)


It's good to see you're back blogging and writing. I really enjoyed that bit of the Tevan and Varda story you posted. I'd like to see more of that when it's ready.
