The concept is sound, I thought. I would use April to launch my novel writing project. Now April 20, 2015, I am less sure. The outcome is not what I expected. The plan that I expected to outline hasn’t happened. The start point has not emerged. Planning may just well be another term for procrastination.
I know what’s going on. It’s fear – plain and simple that has me stalled. And the cure for that is to begin. I have no plan but I don’t need one. Many of my stories have been written without a plan as I use the D&D method. Discovery and Decisions in turn has served me well in the past. And many of my stories have been written without a plan.
One of my writer friends describes writing as involving bum glue -place butt in chair in front of the writing project and work. I have heard the advice ‘Stay in the room’ -work through the difficulties. So here I go: in the room and on the chair.
