A notebook, a pencil, and ROW 80 Check-in
As some of you know this is my first Around the words in 80 days or #ROW80 as its called on twitter.
It's been a learning process. I keep changing my goals since I'm learning about how I write and learning how to write this book "Feathers and Deaf"
When I wrote the first draft I remember writing 500 words a day. What I forgot was that I didn't write every day when writing the first 1/4 part of the book or the intro act of the book. Some days I just brainstormed, or plotted.
And here the the other thing the story flowing better when I sit down with a notebook and pencil vs sitting at my laptop.
All my characters are changing but maybe one who I haven't even wrote into the story yet since he made an appearance into the first draft until later in the plot.
Things that changed:
My heroine is not a cheerleader, she doesn't have two best friends, at least not yet.
One of the best friends Mallory, turned into the new girl at school, the first day of senior year.
The remaining best Friend Karen, is not starting a new relationship but had a boyfriend since 8th grade.
Oh and least not forget that my heroine is now hard of hearing.
This is all in the first chapter.
Without a doubt this is a Work in Progress!
But I'm having fun, can't see my life without writing. I think I'd write no matter what.
