2 Weeks of writing – Day 3

Yesterday, after lunch, I did enventually get into Langoria. And hey, I skimmed it and realised that it started in the wrong place. So I spent the afternoon reorganising chapter 1, ditching whole sections and toying with the idea of writing from the perspective of a different character. So, chapter one is substantially rewritten, and from here on in the first half of the story is in for a real shake up.

Today, I recorded a new song…I think it is sufficiently mediocre and so satisfies my standards, and then watched the movie Battleship. Now, some people say this is not a first class movie. I, however, think it’s great.Lots of aliens, explosions, a battleship, the underdogs winning. Yeehah!

More writing this afternoon, after a trip to the beach for lunch and a swim, and lots of large bits of paper with arrows and flow charts to work out the plot. Even with new technology, I like an A3 sheet of paper and pencil, together with loud music, to replot. Call me old fashioned, lots of people do,  it it keeps me focused.

Tomorrow, I shall progress with shredding and recomposing chapters 2 and maybe 3. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
