Old Stories

At the end of the week my gears have to shift with fulfilling orders and restocking my inventory as my brains are being sold. That’s right! My handmade miniature brains in a jar continue to sell out to those using them for board games and decorations.

I might not be writing but anything that keeps my creative gears turning is a benefit. In the back of my mind I’m working out plot holes and storylines. Page by page and thought by thought I work through the main points but keep it simple. Thinking about creating an epic story can cause my eyes to glaze over at the task at hand.

It’s best to take things page by page sometimes and not think about all the steps so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. This also means that I’m taking out my 30 days of daily prompting and action from Preptober.

This week inspired me to revisit old story ideas and make them anew, so this will be the prompt for today and tomorrow. Dust off those pages or get started on a story that’s been hanging in the background. Ask if this is a story strong enough to turn into a book. Then, begin working on it. Start with writing out the idea without editing. Write raw.

Then, go back in and take one part at a time. Flush out characters and work on the outline. Just one piece at at time to keep the focus narrow. Don’t stress about page count. There’s no time limit for today or tomorrow!

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.
