Here is what I have figured out about my personal writing process thus far:
back cover copy
Main Plot outline
then either: synopsis and rough draft,
rough draft and synopsis (2pg, 3pg and 7pg)
So, it turns out that trying to write my synopsis simply does not work, for me, until I’ve got the scenes outlined already. I personally cannot use a synopsis as a top-down outline, but I do need a plan, with tone (via the tagline) and story throughline (via the logline and back cover copy) to get me to the scenes. Which I do need outlined before I can write confidently. The problem is that I like to just write, but I know from previous NaNoWriMo experiences that editing what I wrote without outlining is enough to make me give up after 3-6 revisions! So, more planning, now! Until next week, friends!

1.) Search for two different reasons to write your own novel, either just for yourself, or for publication.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on writing in general, if you feel moved, here in the comments.
4.) Write a comment about your experiences with NaNoWriMo, or why you do not like the idea of NaNoWriMo. I’m working on a novel starting a bit earlier. My historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill comes from my own family history.
