slight overkill

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I’m teaching myself Microsoft Project (because I’m nuts, that’s why), and I’m contemplating building a project plan for a novel.

Of course, I’m an idiot if I think building a plan is a guarantee of finishing anything. It’s just another trap to fall into if you aren’t careful. Mainly, I want to do it to teach myself a tool, and because it’s more fun than the example the book I’m learning from is using.

Also, I’ve been mulling this over for the last few weeks. Good article. Salient points. Need time to digest.

not gonna say it

Is it possible I have found a good opening line?

It’s possible.

But these things are mutable.

And I’m still synopsisisising.

Well, synopsis…is…ing….

Which comes before the outlining.

Ummmm. Yeah. I’m toying with a lot of ideas, but know I ultimately need to fix on a few pillars to address. Pretty sure what at least one of those is. Just not saying it.

My, what a helpful post!

So, writing? Yes. Just can’t say what until I have an outline.
