I am a blog ho!

Filed under: the web

…And today I’m guest blogging on Hooked on Romance.

Meanwhile, it’s come to the point in my book’s life where I stop writing for a little bit and try to map out what’s going on, using different coloured index cards, on my closet door. Mostly, I’ve discovered that this book is a bit of a mess.

But that’s okay; messes can be tidied up, and books can be fixed.

Right? (Please reassure me.)

  1. It can be fixed!!

    I love the idea of post it’s dotted around. I so need to try that idea!!

  2. Yes, it can be fixed!

    How was that for reassurance? 😉

  3. Listen, if you’ve got a mess, then you’ve got conflict. And if you’ve got conflict, you’re golden. I only read conflict-less books when my Ambien isn’t working.

  4. Ah you are at THAT stage in your book.

    It will be wonderful. It is part of your own unique process. Enjoy the mapping.

  5. Julie, you’ve been here before and you got through it. You’ll be there again at the next stage. (Was it you who told me the Neil Gaiman quote which said almost the same thing?)

    It’s fixable, because you have stuff to work with. Go for it. 🙂

  6. Yes, it is true. I’ve been here before, and it always gets fixed. It’s always a painful, sickening place to be, though.

    I’ve got conflict coming out of the yazoo, Ehle. I can’t figure out what’s going to make anyone happy in this book.
