Thursday Things

Fly the seat of the pants (pantsers) rules for nano.

1. Forget all the little rules I know about saying ‘felt’ instead of ‘was feeling’. Could increase word count quickly.

2. When the characters completely ignore the idea I had to meet in the common area of the house and instead get stuck in the elevator, assume that they know better than I do what’s happening. Let them run amuck and add 12+ pages to ms before finally getting them headed down the original road.

3. Ignore the fact that the planned male hero has had zero real contact with heroine by page 33 and word 14300. Note with interest that while he’s gotten some action in dream/visions his younger brother has been fooling around with heroine for the past 20 pages. Younger brother is a trifle bewildered by all this but he’s not complaining.

4. Heroine is clueless, in a nice way. Life is happening and she’s just along for the ride. Enjoying every minute.

That’s not a bad way to be….

Thanks guys for the comments

Just so you know, I’m home again and hope to post a Fae Vision installment tomorrow morning.

Tammy Lyn, great to meet you. I won’t be at the Nov meeting so you’ll have to touch base here or by email.

Gotta go and nano… I’ve got a great scene that screamed to be written the last 3 hours of our drive when it was too dark to write!
