I'm back after a fabulous weekend away, and it was quite refreshing! Now it's Monday and I'm stressed all over again. My mentoring session went quite well last Friday... she had so much to teach me and my eyes have been opened to quite a few things. So, yet again, I'm researching, restructuring, etc. It's both emotionally and mentally taxing, so I apologize if I say something stupid. hahaha.
On a happier writing related note, I had so many brainstorming breakthroughs over the weekend for Anemone!! I'd already had the first 12 chapters, and a few random pages written in the middle and some further in, but my brick wall has been the dead space between the beginning and the climax (one of them), and most of it came to me yesterday!! I wrote pages and pages of notes and bits of dialogue that I want to include, and I'm pumped to finally make some progress.
I'm actually thinking about outlining now. I usually have a rough idea of what I want to happen written out, but I'm interested to hear what y'all do about outlining. Is there a template or basic structure you like to follow? What sort of things do you include in the outline?
