Can you believe we’re already in June?! May was one of those weird months, you know the kind that seems to take forever at the time, but when you look back it feels like it flew by?
I’ll be honest: May was a bit of a flop on the writing front. Very little happened with my WIP, I fell behind and then off the wagon completely with the Twitter hashtag games I like, and struggled to meet my targets on here for weekly posts.
However, May was not a total loss. I didn’t get round to finishing the second half of my synopsis like I wanted to, but I did start plotting the first book in the series. I’m trying to outline each of the major plot points first, using the 3-Act Structure, and then look at filling in the in-between scenes after.
I also sat down and have planned out achievable (fingers crossed) writing goals from now until next February. They are written down, colour-coded, and pinned to my notice board in an attempt to keep me focused.
My aim for June is to finish plotting and planning book 1, and have a decent enough over-view of the entire series outlined as well (because foreshadowing). Then when Camp NaNoWriMo starts again next month, I will *hopefully* be able to start my first draft. Finally!
That’s the plan anyway 🙂
On top of that, I’m going to try and get back to posting on here a little more regularly, and be around on Twitter more often.
Small steps, I know, but as long as I’m moving forwards, the speed doesn’t really matter at this point.
Hope you all have a productive June, and if you’re interested in taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo next month, have a look at their website here.
