Snowmageddon in Practice

Posted in Updates at 1:11 pm by jajohnson7

I’ve nearly finished using the Snowflake Method to outline my novel. I still need to figure out that fourth quarter of the book. It didn’t take as much time as it could have because I’d already sorted out my main characters and just needed to decide on / create the series of events that make up the actual plot. Then I accidentally skipped a step and went straight into the multi-paragraph description. Oops. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you obviously didn’t check out the link from yesterday. Shame on you!)

Today I’m taking advantage of the snow-in to write the first chapter. I’ve added a Progress Box on the side *points to the right* to keep me accountable. It works too. As soon as I added it I felt embarrassed about that huge glaring “Wordcount: 0” and immediately started writing.

The one disadvantage the snow-in is giving my writing? The frequent stops to shovel what’s fallen since the last time I shoveled.

      Thanks! 😀 Unfortunately I got to a scene I’d already run through in my head, and then forgot how it went! So frustrating!
