I dreamed of writing the outline for my chick-lit novel this morning.
was at a work lunch. seated to my left was one of my former colleagues, whom I still see every now and then.
(btw, she shows up in my dreamscape whenever I am on a right path.)
bored by the conversation at the table. I grab a blank piece of paper (from somewhere!) and begin writing single word draft titles for each of my eleven(?!) chapters.
now, I can’t recall all that I wrote – but one thing stands out: I could read the scribbles. reading letters + dreaming usually don’t go together.
here’s what I do remember:
time to get writing.
pretty sure this dream inspiration manifested after dinner last night when my hub and I were discussing the Triangle of Writing that I had read about earlier this week.
given what a visual and project focused person I am, the Triangle of Writing Metrics, by Rachel Aaron snapped my attention.
and made it very clear why I have not written for weeks now.
I get it.
I need an outline.
I have been writing about Jillie and Anya willy-nilly. free. all over the place. whatever pops to mind. while enjoying it thoroughly.
I’m now stuck. (funny, I just wrote ‘not’ instead of now…)
I don’t know where I’m going. or what they are doing. I have a mental picture. but need something right in front of me to get rolling again.
you can read Rachel’s blog here…
so there you have it: I intend to put together an Anya and Jillian map this month. bazingo! 😉
hope you all have a great weekend! we have a weekend of cleaning and clearing out Xmas. plus, I’m eagerly awaiting the results of my Myers-Briggs Step II assessment. more training and self-discovery coming up! 🙂
here’s some music to push you into a good mood… 🙂
