Writing

Two weeks ago I started a book entitle 90 Days To Your Novel by Sarah Domet.  Essentially the book is a guide designed to get you into the habit of writing daily then focusing on some of the mechanics of good writing before it takes you through outlining, planning scenes, characterization, dialogue, and more planning of scenes.

I have over a dozen different ideas for novels floating around in my mind (plus a few for non-fiction works as well) but I always seem to have a difficult time developing them into a complete first draft.  I've tried many times, done outlines, written scenes, but I always stall out.  It doesn't matter what I do, I always stall out.  So when I saw the book I decided to pick it up and give it go.

Since I'm two weeks into this foray, I should be on day 14 of my 90 day task, right?  Wrong.  I'm on day three.  And probably will be until tomorrow.  But hey, progress is progress, right?  Maybe by day 180 I'll be done.  One can hope.
