Planning out Burning Dim has been challenging. I know exactly what I want to say and how I want things to flow. I have plot outlines, character profiles, and an idea of how most of the dialogue should go. However, the problem I’m having is that I have too much information in many places. I saved the bulk of my Word docs and Excel files on a flash drive and backed up on a memory card and Dropbox, but I have a lot of notes in my Moleskin and hundreds of memos on my phone.
So, to help me keep track of everything I purchased Scrivener everything. I’m going through the tutorial now and am hoping it’s worth the $40 I just invested. I’m really serious about having a draft of my manuscript finished before New Years so I really need to finish all of my planning & pre-writing before June 1st. You are more than welcome to help keep me accountable.
