Writing My First Novel: Stage Two

I don’t want to bore you too much with these novel updates, but I will anyway!

I love the app called Circus Ponies Notebook.  I LOVE it.  It makes me feel organized and complete.

Today I listened to my first instructional audiobook on writing.  It’s call Rock Your Plot and it’s only 1 hour and 42 minutes long.

I sat listening to it while taking notes on Circus Ponies Notebook – I had both hands free, so why not?

I find it hilarious that I want to write a book, and yet would much rather listen to them than read them.

Each night before I go to sleep, I play an audiobook and within 7 minutes I’m out like trout.  Even when my mind is turned on full throttle.  As long as I focus and listen to the story, I fall peacefully to sleep.  This is great advice for anyone suffering from insomnia.

I completed my story outline today.  Full with plot twists, a few comedic scenes, the hitting rock bottom moment, and a resolution with another delightful twist.

It flowed without me having to think.  I wasn’t caught up on anything.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing.

My brain hurts.  I had to turn down the brightness of my screen.
