Bits and Pieces

One of the goals I set for the new year was to write everyday. I can't say I've been perfect, I must admit to missing a few days here and there, but for the most part I've been fairly faithful. I'm making some progress on my current mss, which is making me happy.

However, I find that I'm writing in bits and pieces. As things come to me for the story line, I'm writing them. As a result, I've been writing all over the place. I have snippets of scenes scattered throughout my manuscript, with no discernable threads to tie them together as of yet.

It's an interesting way to write. I've written out of order before...sometimes writing the ending before I've finished the middle. But it's never been this choppy before. I'm going to need to do some very creative connecting the dots and some really thorough editing on this one. To say the least, it will be intersting to see how this one turns out!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

I've been doing the bits and pieces style with my memoir, Diary of a Nervous Baby Boomer. I want to get it all down and then connect the dots. Hopefully, it'll work!
