I’m locking things down with the outline of the novel I’m developing. I still have a huge gaping hole in the second half of the second act, but nothing I can’t fix in about two weeks (I hope.)
I have a lot of thinking to do right now.
I have to figure out a way to have some of the scenes I’ve been thinking about for about two years. I also need to have, like, an investigation. Right now, I’m a little worried that things kind of drift and don’t really talk about the actual investigation that much.
But I still have time to change that.
I’m going to spend the next two weeks reworking and filling out the outline (and reading a huge amount) so when I actually start writing again just after the 4th of July Weekend that things will go very, very fast. That’s been the point of all this development, measure twice, cut once and all that.
Anyway, that’s what I’m going to focus on the next two weeks or so. I really, really want to change gears and start writing the first draft seriously around the end of the 4th of July Weekend.
