New Program

Day 11 of trying Victoria's book again and I decided to plug it into a new program I downloaded back in January called  yWriter5.  It really is a great program helping you keep track of characters, locations and props as well as the actual story.  I am doing this all because I have run into a block roughly the size of the Great Wall (LOL).  I am hoping that breaking the story down this way I can find a chip in the block.

Week one

I have decided not to scrap the whole thing and start over.  As I was reading through what I already had I found some stuff that was actually usable, so I am now going through and deleting those things which would be inconsistent with my characters new personalities.  Although I have to say I am keeping much more than I thought I would also I am considering going into more detail on the six year voyage to the new planet (see January 2 for story description) as well as deepening characters.

Hello everybody I am so sorry I have not posted in awhile.  Just when we get the hubby's health all worked out my own health is starting to go downhill. I am having problems with my back and legs and the 'almighty' doctors cannot find the problems.

As I am taking February off to study and research I thought i would post an update on my studies.  I am reading a book on the darker characters of fiction. How to write them that is, in reading this book I have made the decision to make one of my protagonists a Dark Hero.  I am also considering investing in some graphing paper to better map out living and working areas. 


Thank you all for the comments, I have (I hope) improved according to your many suggestions and a few of my own ideas.

14000 words of worry

We got the news back from hubby's stress test and he has a slight clog they are doing a "cath scan"  Wednesday to see what's going on.  In the meantime I have found writing soothing, I have discovered that this world I am creating in my story is an escape for me and for just a few hours I do not have to be in a panic over another possible bypass.
