Hi everyone, just letting you know that I still exist! I intended to participate in NaNoWriMo as a way of motivating myself to write every single day. Alas, my detailed outline isn't done yet. My WIP is frustrating me and I'm not sure if it's me, the book itself, or a combination of the two. The story arc includes two interwoven plotlines so I'm going to try outlining each of them separately and then combine them in my master outline. I want to update this blog regularly, but I know I shouldn't do that if it's just distracting me from the novel. So, you probably shouldn't expect any regular updates until January. Surely by then I will have finished the outline. *fingers crossed* Has anyone else had this problem? How did you handle it? Sometimes I wonder if I just need to set this one aside and work on something else for a while, but everyone I've told about it thinks it's a great idea and I should keep on keeping on. Or maybe I'm one of those writers who works best when multitasking on several projects.
