This week, all goals completed!
This is my third of the three posts I wanted to write. I loved writing the one on my ideal writing place. I keep adding details to it in my head.
On Thursday I worked on a loose outline and tried to just plot my ideas in some way. I know this will change but I think it was good for me to set out the main things I want to happen. I also thought about the tense I will write in and decided to have a go at writing it in the first person but from both girls points of view (more on this later).
On Friday it was a late 30 mins when I had gotten into bed but I did them. I made notes on my character notes as little bits and pieces had come to me over the last couple of days and had been saved on my phone or on scraps of paper as often they came to me when I couldn't write them anywhere else. I also did some practical bits like transferring all my writing bits to my memory stick so I have them with me now I am away for a few days.
On Saturday I made further character notes and I think I have made character 1 more likable by simply adding more relationships into her life. I want her to be a sort of lonely character (which will explain why she does what she does) but want you to like her too. She is not a bad person, just struggles to be alone. Even with friends around you can still feel alone so I have given her more friendships. I also did my fiction friday (check!) on the bus on the way up to london. The prompt leant itself to be written from my character 1's point of view so I gave it a go writing in the first person as my character 1. The first time I tried to write as her. It was HARD! I don't know if I will write in 1st or 3rd person. I felt I struggled to get the location, actions etc in when writing in the 1st person tense. But it could just be my lack of experience so will keep an open mind and see what happens.
So feeling good this week. My Saturday writing was done on a bus, sat next to someone who got elbowed a lot as I balanced my notebook on top of my handbag but I did it. I did an hour yesterday as I knew a check-in would be all I have time for today.
Hope you had good weeks! Off to check some check-ins out!
