My bad. Its been too many days away which has certainly not been my intention. Do charge it to my head and not my heart. What has been going on? Well I have been “quilting” with words and really just coming out of hibernation mode with everything else in my life. What is “Quilting” with words? Quilting with words is something that I think most writers do they just don’t call it such. As I said before I have over 90 different story lines that have yet to be completed, or in the case of many, started.
Quilting is where I write down scenes for a novel, the action the dialogue. I write it as it would appear in the story. This scene may be somewhere in the middle of the piece. The next scene I write may be close to the beginning. I store these scenes in a document and when my muse is ready to sit down and actually write that particular story from start to finish. At that point I take each written scene or “square of words” and piece them together in an order that builds the perfect story.
Since freewriting has been such a creative burst and a lot of my characters have been yelling at me, I have had a lot of typing and imagining to do.
So that is why I have been away. I promise to do better in the future. Actually I will write about my next plan of action in this regard in a future post.
Cheers until then!
