After a busy few days, I'm a bit flumped today, so this is just a fly-by post to rejoice in what I've achieved with MoulderingBook over the past two days.

Taking on board all the advice you guys so kindly shared with me last week (*group hug*), along with the 'key' [livejournal.com profile] readthisandweep donated to the cause (*blows kisses*), I wrote and wrote and wrote reams of notes in my notebook. Wrote, in fact, until I was so excited by the new path I see before me for MoulderingBook that I had to spend some time at my computer translating those notes into some sort of shape.

So, I now have thirteen close-typed pages of what I'm thinking of as 'My Story Plan'.

This is nothing new in terms of 'process'; I often begin a project with a bundle of notes like this. What is new is what I'll be doing next.

What I won't be doing is dashing off on a wave of enthusiasm to begin writing the story in its new shape.

Instead, I shall be returning to my notes and brainstorming lots more. Filling in the gaps in the plot; fleshing out existing plot points; thinking about character, and all in all, DOING MORE at this stage before the actual writing begins.

(It's useful for me to set it out like that as it helps get it into my brain that I'M NOT STARTING TO WRITE THE STORY YET!) Er-hem.

Thanks for listening (and sorry about the shouting!)
