My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Radleigh McCoy.
I've gotten into a lot of trouble because, sometimes, Richard doesn't think I am professional enough. I think that's bullshit. Okay, occasionally I break the rules of the game, but it happens in the heat of the moment, when I'm trying to get that ball in the net so we can win. And maybe sometimes I yell at the ref because he made a bad decision, but it's passion. I don't want to be sent off the field because he made a bad call and ruined the match for the team.
I'm late for training sometimes too, but that's usually only when a hot woman has kept me awake all night. Heh.
Most of the time, I am professional. I'm professional because I love soccer. There's nothing else I would ever want to do. My dad was one of the best in his day, and he taught me everything I know. Not about rule breaking, that makes him crazy, but he taught me how to play the game. If I have any professionalism in me at all, it's because of him.
Next, I signed up to Madeleine Maddocks' Plotter or Pantser blogfest!
Here's what we do:
Post your tips and secrets on how you plot your novels. Even if you are a Pantser rather than a Plotter, there must be some methods you follow when writing your stories. Or you can post about any aspect of plotting.
How do you Plot your novels?
Okay. Well, I am a total pantser. I usually begin every story with characters and a very, very loose outline. I have tried planning in the past, but I found that it makes me feel stifled, like I am bound to those rules I created. I know it's not true, but nevertheless, I don't feel free when I have a plan.
I guess I like to write the way I read. I turn each page, knowing what the story is about, but not quite knowing what will happen next. My characters usually tell me what to do, and I'm okay with that! :D
