Yesterday I had decided to keep to my original outline and then go back and add in description and plot points to increase my word count. I felt good and calm about that course of action.
My word count is going OK.
However, as I’m writing, I’m finding that my plot is changing slightly. I should be able to stick to the roughest concept for my plot and ending, but I am straying from my long prepared outline.
I’m a planner. Most definitely. Some people, the ‘pantsers’, prefer to just go in and write the story without much forethought. That idea frightens me.
I suppose I just have to ignore my outline for now and hope that I can jump back to it soon enough.
Maybe this side trip will increase my word count….
