Progress Report: November 2020 #amediting #amwriting

November felt like a weird month. I ran write ins 6 days/week, which took a toll on me. It’ll be nice to have a weekend again. I noticed that I tended to muddle through the middle of the book because I didn’t have a clear enough picture of the middle 2 beats, which are also the largest. In the future, I’ll have to work harder on being more definitive there.

I didn’t get much done other than writing in Shifting Paradigms, but then I didn’t expect to. I’m fairly good at focusing on one thing at a time and struggle when I try to add to it.

Lessons Learned:

  • Need to outline more during “Fun & Games” and “Bad Guys Close In” beats of novel.
