How Does Your WIP Grow?
How I Write Scenes
Dialog that won’t get to the point?
Scenes taking too long for something to happen?
That was me.
I’m sixteen scenes into my WIP. I finally found a way to write them.
Is it hard? Not once I get started.
Do I have to do some planning? Yippers.
So, how do I do it?
First of all, I outline my stories. Does that make me a plotter vs a panster? More or less. (In case you didn’t know those are terms thrown around by the community, and are not complimentary. A plotter is someone who outlines before they write. A panster writes without an outline.)
Both approaches are interesting. When I write Micro Fiction (stories in one hundred words), I pants. When I write longer stories, I become a plotter. Otherwise, I have no idea where the story will go.
