Jump Right In

by Kay~Kacey on 1/14/2007

So I jumped right past that whole fear of first page, and I’m busy on a proposal for Super Romance. It’s a little cutting edge, so we’ll see how it flies. Anyway I’m at the point where I have to write the synopsis :wallbash:

My usual method is to get an idea, mull it over, write the first 3 chapters or so to get to know the charcters. Write the synopsis, then rewrite the first 3 chapters :mrgreen: :typing:

I find that if I can really nail down the GMC for both the hero and heroine, and their character arc, I can really get a handle on the story and avoid the whole sagging middle. But I just beat my head against the wall trying to really, REALLY nail down the whole GMC/ Character arc thing. I sometimes think I over analyze this. 🙄 But I also know that if I DON’T really nail this down, I wander off in tangents on my manuscript.

Now, I don’t plan out every detail. I find that just know the above will allow me to sit down and write the book. Quite often the black moment changes by the time the book is finished though. :mad2:

How about you? Do you really think about this stuff? Know the GMC and what the character has to learn before you’re very far into the book?

Nope. whether I plan or don’t plan ahead…the book veers off in the middle and goes in directions I’d never imagined…

GMC is a brand of truck. That’s how much I think of it. I don’t worry about it. I’m more of a “hero’s journey” plotter. Well, I don’t plot. I have an idea for the beginning and the end then figure out the middle as I go along.

I have no idea how I do anything…..:confused:

I think about it WAY too much. Drive myself nuts. Good luck with the proposal! You know I would LOVE having you join us!!
