Over the next couple of months, you may notice my word counter swinging up and down. I’m trying a new, more visual, technique to help me be able to see the story I’m writing using mindmaps. As I plot it out, I am also doing a bit of rewriting and tightening up the beginning of the story. My plan is that this will give me the push to keep moving forward. My husband suggested I do a little video post about how I’m using mindmaps as a way to see the story and I’m actually considering it, so that may be something that gets posted sometime in the near future.
In the meantime, keep an eye on that number as it swings up and down. Eventually, it’ll stay up and start moving in a positive direction!
