playing to your strengths....

 

This isn’t so hard for me. My strength is in character and weakness is in plot. I stink at plotting.  I didn’t used to be this way.  It’s only since writing thrillers that I have trouble.  I’ve learned a lot from Rhonda.  Plotting backwards when I get stuck is one way I combat it or just calling her to brainstorm.

I have a brainstorming sheet I use. It’s a copy off of the Fiction Writer’s Brainstormer, tailored for moi.  The older I get the few ideas I have and I’d thought I was just losing some creativity and what really happened was I know more, therefore could visualize an idea will work or not in less than five minutes.  So naturally I dismiss them, when I probably should have reworked them a bit. 

After 20 years, I’m still learning apparently.

For characters, which to me are the most important part of writing fiction, I do in depth analysis of each main character.  It’s about 6 pages long for contemporary and 12 for a historical.  I get a lot of plot ideas from it. Not doing them isn’t an option.  It’s my one strength.  

I see my stories in video, like a movie. So describing the scene isn’t hard.  It’s getting it to flow with the narrative and not let it overshadow that takes skill (and rewrites)  I take time with lines that say more in an image than a detailed description.  I firmly believe that you must think of the mood of the character when you describe anything.  Anything.  Keeping it in their vision is a key to full blown characters readers love.

Another weakness…major insecurity about my work. More so lately, since I’ve lost my routine. 

Nothing is good enough and I know I can do better, so I always try to go a step further.  I I want my best stuff out there. 

Hey, my name is on the book.
