So, it would seem that I need to start from scratch, on my story that is. Not that it’s a bad thing; I just feel that it is something that needs to happen for my story to be successful. Learn from my mistakes and move forward. Always move forward.
I have decided to take a writing course through The Institute of Children’s Literature, a correspondance course for writers who write for children and young adults. It may not be for everyone, but the course has helped me focus my writing and actually finish some of my projects. A big deal to me. I am a procrastinator – sorta. Perhaps I like deadlines? Anyway. The course has basically begun and so has my journey into finishing my manuscript. Yippee!
So far, I have completed a summary and a rough outline. My next task is writing my first chapter (more like re-writing). Bring on the writing frenzy that is my first draft (again).
The story is definitely taking on a better shape. Outlining my story, who knew? 😉
Keep writing and move forward.
