If there was an emoji for a big belly laugh in Scrivener, I’d insert one here. Let me make this week three report as clear as possible. I read a romance novel. Or, rather I read several of them.
I wrote about 1000 words.
Nope, didn’t measure or count them but I did dictate them into a master Scrivener file. So I count that as great practice for dictation as the accuracy level was easily into the high 90’s. Thanks to this ebook on Training Your Dragon.
So What Did I Do?
- If you remember last week, I was stunned to discover I had a monster story on my hands after I had done the main thinking and noodling around.
- I also pinned it down to having three love stories.
- I read the Dummies Book on Writing A Romance novel. (As an aside, if anyone is having trouble identifying “conflict” in stories – romance or otherwise – it’s a good read and worth the $12.)
- I started laying out/writing one of those romance stories – did it and was really unhappy with it. I mean really unhappy. Structure and words were deleted. Back to square one.
