This post is part of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group blog hop. The first Wednesday of every month is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. The awesome co-hosts for the April 3 posting of the IWSG are J.H. Moncrieff, Natalie Aguirre, Patsy Collins, and Chemist Ken!
Happy April! I nearly forgot to post today, mostly because my work schedule changed and I was confused about what day it was. I can apparently write entire books but I can’t keep track of the day of the week. 😉 But here I am!
I wasn’t nearly as productive in March as I wanted to be, so I’m hoping April will be better. I’ve started working on a new book but I was hoping to be much farther along with it–and I would have been, except for a lot of procrastination. My goal for spring is to ‘spring’ into action more and write, write, write instead of spending so much time distracting myself. We’ll see if my enthusiasm blooms with the flowers this month.
April 3 question: If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)
I think I would use my wish on any climactic scene that I write. I’m always afraid the peak of the story won’t live up to the reader’s expectation when they finally get to it. I know what I want to write while I’m aiming for it, and it seems really dramatic in my head, but when I write it, it’s usually nowhere near as sweeping and all-consuming as I hoped it would be. Usually, I can kind of get what I expected, but I’m always worried about it not meeting the hype I’ve been working up to.
How about you? What scene would you like help writing?
