Hi all! Just want to remind you to drop by tomorrow for our second visitor. Also, if you look to your right, you will see all the months that are available for other writers. So please contact me if you want to book a Friday. :-)
So after blogging myself into a fervor, I opened my story and dared my internal editor to say something.
And he did.
With the smoothness of an executioner's blow, he said:
"Well... congrats... But remember you changed the story?"
"So where are you headed?"
And there it was.
The bastard had a point.
As a card-carrying pantser, I can get very lost very easily.
That is why I have one plotterish rule that I don't deviate from for as long as I am writing Doorways.
Always. I repeat. ALWAYS know where you're going.
I decided to change the order of events in James's side of the story, not realizing how far it would change things.
When the I.E. spoke, I realized that I had been getting myself lost. Badly lost.
No wonder I've been stalling.
Now I'm just glad that I stall rather than write nonsense.
If I didn't there would have been a lot of time wasted.
So here I will say something that I never thought I'd say.
Anyone else get saved by your internal editor?
