So today started off with a call from Canada and a chat with my mentor as to what classes I should take for grad school. Really exciting stuff. I got it all taken care of and now it's on to plotting!
I always hear different takes on plotting, and you know what? I don't think I've found my perfect niche yet. I'm a very bar bones kind of plotter, who writes by the seat of my pants. I'm really trying to change that because when I reach a lull in my story or a transitional stage I'm usually stuck for a good while before I can overcome the hurdle. So today I'm trying to plot out my newest story idea very thoroughly. So far it's bar bones, I figure I'll get the majority of the story out and then flesh it in.
I'm really hoping this will help the writing process go faster and keep me on track. It's a little slow going (thus this blog post ;) ) but I really want to stick with it and find my perfect plotting method. I've already eaten my share of carrots for the day, so those plot bunnies better get a move on in my brain!
What about you guys? What do you do for plotting? Are you plotters or write-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of people?
