The Scribblings Of An Award Winning Screenwriter.
I ain't in any position to tell anyone how to write novels, but I reckon you'll get a better quality of rewrite if you push on with the story and come back in 10 or 20,000 words' time. You'll know your story so much better.
Still pretty good going though Dom!Perhaps you should join in Nanowrimo to get that first draft written without the stressy rewrites? I was worried about editing too much as I do that naturally and am quite picky, but once you get into the swing of not editing and just moving forwards and seeing where it goes, it becomes quite liberating.As long as you have a rough plan so you know which direction to go in, you'll do fine :) Go for it! Rock on!
The reason I didn't join in with Nanowrimo was because of what I have discussed in my forth coming Twelvepoint.com article. In it I talk about setting yourself goals, but not setting them so high you don't achieve them. By doing this you are setting yourself up for disappointment and making yourself angry by not achieving them. I don't get much time to write so setting a target of 2000 words a day was just silly. So I have set my target at 500 words per week, then if I do more, which I quite often do, I feel good about myself. It's all about motivation.
You're being disingenuous, Sarah. Why not be honest: you're looking for people to pay you to 'publish' e-books onto Kindle. That's all. Your comment spam has got nothing to do with Dom's passion or creativity. It's just about money. Go on, prove me wrong.Sorry Dom, but this kind of dishonesty ticks me off.
Me too!!!! and an extra one for good measure!
$450 to become a 'World Famous' writer.....ooh, the temptation.
If only it was that easy ;-)
Well, when you put it like that...
I've just read your article on TwelvePoint. Many thanks for being so open about something most of us would rather keep to ourselves. I've been going through the same thing for a very long time (in the middle of what I call a "fugg" right now) and it's good to know that, in this damned lonely pursuit, we're not alone.Thanks again.
Dom, best to forge ahead with the writing as Laurence. Going back and rewriting so soon is a snare that you can easily get caught up in.If you want, you can always set some time aside to think about what you've put down on paper so far and make notes about any changes you might want to make later in the day. But for the time being keep going.Good luck with it.
