A couple of weeks ago I posted about my trip to Bali to take part in the 15th Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. (Read that post HERE).
Now I’m home and after two incredible weeks, I want to recap on the festival and what I gained from it.
Pantsing versus plotting. This topic comes up a lot in the writing world.
Let’s start with what these two terms mean. Pantsing refers to jumping into a novel without having a plan for what will happen (writing by the seat of your pants), whereas plotting is all about, you guessed it, plotting your novel and going in with a good idea of what will happen.
A lot of writers pick one side or the other. You can be a plotter or a pantser, but I think finding the balance of both can really be the key to writing successfully.
I thought I would post an update about my Twisted Fates rewrite. I hope these posts are interesting for people! I know that for me, I really appreciate hearing about peoples processes so these types of posts are fascinating.
I’ve hit the 30k mark, I repeat, I have hit the 30k mark!
Wooohoo, writing progress! I have finally written 30,000 words for my beloved The Witches of Belle River. Recently I have been super productive with my writing, thanks to a few different writing incentives I have implemented. I’m trying to write 2,000 words a week, which may seem low for some people, but considering the writer’s block wormhole I’ve been in for the last few months, this has been a great start. (more…)
A brand new post about my novel journal! So in love with it. I add more and more to it every day and it’s been a helpful tool to have! I hope these posts inspire some of you to start journaling!
