I think I’ve found my title for my novel: Learning to Breathe. Other titles were "Letting go" and "But a flame in the ocean", both of which sucked epically. It just fits. And vamp novel title: Playing with Darts. Might change.
Learning to Breathe/LtB:
216 new words written on Wednesday (yesterday)
Playing with Darts/PwD:
PwD’s plot: I’m figuring out the plot of PwD and it’s coming along nicely. And I have some GREAT scenes for the climax. It’s going to be very Buffy-esque. (But, obviously, not identical to it.)
LtB’s plot: I have a problem with this book’s plot. I have most of the ending figured out, namely everything from the epiphany to the new status quo. So basically, the entire ending. But I’m missing large chunks of the middle, between character commits to their goal and epiphany. So, once again, basically, the entire middle. And there I was, hoping to finish it by the 1st of September. Just imagine this:
Random person at school: So, what did you do this summer?
Me: Oh… Nothing much, saw some old friends, spent some time in a pool, wrote a novel, watched TV…
How cool would that be?
If you’re wondering what I meant with new status quo and interludes and all that:
According to this site ( http://www.novel-writing-help.com/ ) this is how a novel is composed:
|Part 1: Beginning||Part 2: Middle||Part 3: End|
|Status quo||First mini-goal and interlude||Epiphany|
|Something happens||Mini-goals and interludes||Final victory|
|Character commits to their goal(s)||Rock bottom||New status quo|
Okay. Plan for the day:
- Start chapter 7 of LtB
- Swim in pool (because we leave this Saturday and tomorrow we pack)
- Figure out plot for LtB
- Maybe write some more of PwD
- Finish watching Dracula (1992 with Gary Oldman and Keanu Reeves)
- Edit chapter 3 for Sarah (http://www.fictionpress.com/u/611899/ look for a post promoting her story)
That’s it. Over and out.
