It's probably a good thing to keep in mind, but maybe I'll make myself one promise for NaNoWriMo, this year. No obsessively checking my word count while I'm writing. It would be less time consuming to check it after I finish the daily.

Anatomy of a Children's Book Synopsis: Writing For Children And Teens

I'm planning a YA, but I think the general advice on this stands true. The stark outline of a novel;, the basic frame upon which to hang plots, subplots, and so forth. I Googled this for a reminder, because it's good advice. The synopsis format lends itself to a pantser, because you can still write as you go, because it's a hand-drawn map on the highway with only the vaguest sense of direction. It's good for planners too, because you can voil your evil serpent-schemes around it.

Outlines [Sep. 23rd, 2011|12:20 pm]

My main impression from all the outline stuff: Basically, who-what-when-where-why-how, present tense, terse. AmIrite? At least for the initial one. I'm glad there's a bit longer for this. I'm decided where and how to proceed with mine. Also been reading more YA stuff.

I was also thinking that, just maybe, the "writing flash fiction with bubble diagrams" could help. Since you want to keep the initial outline short, the format could help you focus on the main story. When you have that, you can work the subplots you already have in mind around it, like ivy on a trellis.

One content, two separate posts in two separate pales, so if you can't reach one site, there's a backup. I just received permission to link these posts on outlining.

Novel Outlining 101 from Paperback Writer's blog. I've always found this blog interesting and informative, and I'm gonig to head back here soon. Trying to get a lot of things in order right now. Upcoming cataract surgery, get some things cleared and out of the way that have had me preoccupied and even worried so that I'll have less distraction, come November. I've been Googling and alll that, trying to find inspiration and the like to help me get this written. At least I have a month and a half to go with it, now. If you want to post your own progress on your outline, feel free to do so.
