NaNoWriMo Day 29

Sunday, November 29, 2020

I spent the day working on my outline and revamping it to fit better with the story. I know the characters better than I did at the beginning and I also know more details about the story itself. This has been a challenge but at least now I know what has and hasn't worked.

I spent too much time setting up the characters and their lives so I need to push back. I think I can do this by removing about 15,000 words--which is a lot--of the story that don't need to be there.

Here is a list of what I worked on today: 
  • Figure out what scenes need to be cut
  • Figure out how to connect the scenes with each other 
  • What new information did I come up with that I didn't have in my outline
    • How does this change the details (what is the name of my MC's therapist, what is the name of her co-workers, what is the LI's co-workers name, etc). 
  • Now that I have decided what scenes need to be cut, how can I establish my MC's current state in a way that's done well
