I love epiphany moments when I’m writing - LOVE them. They are those special little moments when you just want to smack yourself on the forehead and yell “Why didn’t I think of that before!” Brilliance shinning and immense relief all at once. Love it.
Anyway, I had one of said moments yesterday. (And yes I did smack myself on the forehead. :D) But it was fabulous. And it was like a dam releasing after that. The ideas just flowed. I tacked on three more outlined chapters to the story I haven’t really made any headway on since last summer.
So I give bonus points to my outlining experiment. Since I’m just outlining, I don’t have to have every facet of every conversation and every movement set in stone before moving on. I can quickly jot down notes on how the chapter is going to flow and then keep moving. It’s great!
I’m officially an outline person now. :D
What about you? Outline or winging it?
