Woohoo! Thanks to all the well-wishers on my certification exam. I passed and am now free to focus on my next big project, “Things I’d Rather Do.”
At the top of the list in that project is – write a novel. I’m taking the plunge, dang-nabbit. If I fail, I fail. I only have myself to blame. But you can’t succeed without trying. I’ve already started on a couple of techniques to come up with fresh ideas and flesh out old ones:
Mind mapping – This just seemed like an ideal medium for me to branch out scenes and plots. I’ve been using bubbl.us since it’s web-based and I can access it from wherever I’m wired (or wireless).
Snowflake method – I’ve also decided to see if Randy Ingermanson’s Snowflake Method for writing novels is for me. It seems to mesh with how I prefer to work, so things may bode well.
