I was surprised at the response to my post last month on SMART writing goals; it was nice to see that wasn't the only one in need of some guidance when outlining a writing project. It made me realise that I've no excuses when it comes to getting the ideas from my head and onto the page - I just need to discipline myself into actually doing it.
So this is me doing it.
I won't say anything more than I've starting putting some tentative ideas down into a notebook about a basic story (it's not even a fully developed arc yet, just the sort of world building and back story that you get in a teaser trailer). I'm not yet sure if I'll use an anonymous pen name, since I'd like to talk about my progress and get writing tips but at the same time I want to keep that side of things completely separate from everything else. But that's for way down the line.
The important thing is I've taken a step.
I've not got a full manuscript.
I've not got a full outline.
I've not even got a full clue.
But I've made a start. And that feels pretty awesome.
What's making you feel awesome this month? Share your successes with me!
