So, got my YA WIP novel back last week and, being a discovery writer, there are a lot of issues in this first draft. One of my major issues seems to be understanding the thoughts of secondary characters and how off screen events effect my main character. While my beta mentioned several times I freaked her out, I fail to see that as a bad thing ^_~
I've decided that, well, the best way to work out these kinks is to write them out. Writing is my favorite way of solving problems, fictional or not.
And well, I figure I can't be the only one out there who wouldn't benefit from side story writings to figure out characters or off screen event. Thus, I dedicate August to acts of writing out our problems.
Any one interested in joining, you're welcome to sign up. You can post once in August, you can post every day, I don't care. The point is to use your fingers and your brain to smooth out plot and character snags, but don't be surprised if you get a helpful comment or two along the way. Writers write, but we also share. A lot. Maybe too much. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
