Just Write

Today I'm off to write something new and post it online before midnight. Everyone inclined to do the same is invited to join me.

My link: In the Leaves 1

  1. I love your snippet. The last line is perfect.

    I found this challenge at just the right time. I've been struggling with prewriting, and this gave me a poke to get into my MC's head. (Mine's a Sally too, oddly enough)

    1. Hey Kit, thanks for joining in -- and lovely to see you here, too. :) Really enjoyed reading what you got with the first draft; your Sally and the world-building have me hooked. Hope you'll continue with it.

      I started this for pretty much the same reason -- I was struggling with starters (as in, got the idea, got the story vaguely outlined in my head, but where/how/with what do I start?) and I thought it would give me a push to just dive in. So far it's worked pretty well, although this week I started In the Leaves in first person and then went back, tossed out a page and rewrote it in third, which worked better for me.

      I'll be back with this feature in a couple of weeks, so I hope you'll stop in again when I do and tell us more about Sally and her world.
