Day #11: Crazy with Interest

Now that Monday is over, it’s time to let those pens loose. Remember the day we worked on our outline? Well it’s time to have a crazy day. Take your plot and make all kinds of crazy alternatives. I’m having you do this now so that you get it out of your system.

A writer should explore alternate plots and scenarios to see that they have the best one for their story. What else would interest your audience? Are there pieces that would crush them? Upset them? Are there plot twists that would through them for a loop?

The point of today is to add as much interest as we can. There are days when you should let loose and go crazy but the earlier you do this, the better. Making changes late into your novel will mean a lot of rewriting when you’re tank is close to empty.

Challenging your own work is also part of the writing process because your fellow writers are also readers. Book lovers will probably have the same questions that you ask when they think of your story. Could something have been better? Would something else have made a better ending? Were your characters too vanilla?

Take your time today and get out the crazy. Don’t put restrictions on yourself. Don’t edit. We’ll narrow it back down as we go forward.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
