Various tones of streaky grey and white are brushstrokes across the sky today. The trees, now in shades of crimson, rust and gold, look even more vibrant set against this monochromatic backdrop.
The power is out today, so my only soundtrack comes from the traffic outside and the stack of CDs I've lined up for the day.
Continuing to work on the Story Evolution worksheets for my book. Right now, I have fast-forwarded to the conflicts in the middle section of the story, and I'm finding I need to spend more time fleshing out the personalities of everyone other than my protagonist, and the story goals of these characters.
I'm actually finding these worksheets to be a godsend in the planning of the book. Normally, I would have felt I had enough of the background decided to dive into writing by now. But I realize that I probably would have only been prepared for the first scene or two, and would most likely have hit a wall after that with no idea how to get past it.
So, I am actually enjoying the extra prep – I have a feeling it will definitely pay off in the long-run.
