Who are your characters? What makes them tick? I went online and found some great sites that provide you with character outlines, and the more detailed they were the better. I started filling them out and as I did my mind kept rolling on little scenes for my book. So now that I have my idea and my character outlines, the next step is too create your minor events that lead up to your major events. This was easy and hard in its own way for me. I say it was hard because as I kept creating my minor events I kept having this thought...your book is not going to be long enough!!!! Ahhh! Oh NO. Now what? Well i reeled in my panic and kept making lists of my minor events. Then I broke down each of those events into scenes, with detailed descriptions of who is involved, where they were, what exactly is happening, and why this is important to get me to my next step.
All very interesting right? Yes I would say August 13th was beneficial for Emory and the rest of my books cast. I still have panic in my bones about it ending up not long enough but I still have more work to do on my scenes. So I am trusting myself to figure it out!
