I was fighting my way out today. (lol) My daughter was sick and stayed home from school and although that sounds like a bad thing, I had to stay home with her. That meant that I got to write all day long. While I forgot to keep track of the word count that I increased my book by, I do know that I added twelve new typed pages, size twelve font. I have written seven chapters consecutively but my first two chapters aren’t attached to them. You see, I have found that when you know what direction you want to take your book but aren’t sure exactly how to get it there, you might need to stop where you are and start again in a spot you feel more motivated to write. For example: Imagine you’ve just written an exciting scene and your characters are now coming down from that high. They are about to embark on a new exciting adventure but you aren’t sure how to put both scenes together. What I do is stop trying to lead into it and just move on and start writing the next great scenario. You’ll write better because your motivated and you can always go back and build a bridge to conjoin the two sections. It has worked for me so far although some bridges are harder to build than others. Good luck and happy writing!
