6072 / 90000

The Semi-Secret Project (aka CoL) progresses. I am alternating between writing new stuff and typing up the scraps of paper I have stuffed into a plastic sleeve. There will be a lot of excess.

The artscaresyou auction is over – congratulations to everyone who got the books/marzipan noses/dalek art they were after. I don’t know yet what the tally is, but my little villain went for $50! So I hope that pushed the total up a little.

  1. So are you a planner when it comes to the writing? As in, do you have to have an outline, background info, character histories etc.

    I must admit, I fly by the seat of my pants, which is terrifying at best. But I can’t plan to save myself.

  2. I’m in between. I find the theory of planning easy, but the practice is hard because I get attached to ideas and want to grow them organically.

    I usually end up jotting down ideas, passages, scenes etc. Then I look at them and sort them into a rough order. Then write a rough draft, then sit back and either tweak (or do a plan after the event to make sure everything fits where it ought).

    I don’t do background & character info per se. Sometimes I keep a running list of characters and key characteristics and I think I will definitely do that on the second draft of this.

  3. I nominated you for a blog award! The rules state that I notify you by posting a comment on your most recent post.

    Also, I’m glad you’re going places on this project, and if I could have afforded it I would have bid on your villain. :)
