This is the sort of silliness I'm talking about
Considering my previous post, I had to share this picture with you.
What is it? It's a chart listing the driving emotions behind one of my main characters (unfortunately it's illegible because I took it with Photo Booth, so it's backwards). I've then plotted my major events under the different emotional strands. See, I know how my character (Isabel) feels at the beginning of the book, and I know how she feels at the end, but the middle is a bit fuzzy. So I'm hoping this will help me to make sure the rest of the plot is structured around her emotional development.
Now do you see why I hate this? Wish I could just figure it all out and start writing again. But do notice how neat my handwriting is. I take great pride in that.
