Writing is simple, but it’s not easy. Sometimes you need a nudge to turn that blank page into something worth reading.
In today’s article, Autumn Birt shares some tips on how to reboot your story.
Have you ever been writing and hit a wall to wonder, what happens next?
Or, worse, written until you realize you have no where else to go, the story just sort of dies right there under your cursor, and you’ve lost months of work writing something that isn’t publishable?
It doesn’t have to be that way. The good news is the only choice is not to plot every detail before you start writing in order to know that you have all the elements to create a solid story.
There is a lot of room between coming up with a story idea and hoping for the best as you dive into writing, and creating a twenty page outline.
Like, how about a technique that will take about half an hour, will help you organize the key points to your story, find holes or areas that need developed before you spend months writing to hit a dead end, and will, hopefully, get you more excited about writing instead of worn out from plotting?
