Welcome to Day 1 of Nano!! I’ve had great ideas for the past couple of months, knowing exactly where I’m going with the story, who’s doing what to whom, and when the kid gets kidnapped.
Yeah, I’ve got about 2,500 words so far today. But it’s always easier in my head. I looked at the blank screen and thought, “Oh, crap…now what??”
I had no idea what to do. Then it hit me – I can keep the words in my head.
Now, that may sound180 degrees off base. How can you keep the words in your head if you’re going to write a novel for the public to read? (Someday. Hopefully.)
I found a way around the problem.
Those of you who read this blog know that I write in Scrivener. In Scrivener I can go into Full Screen format, change my font color to match the background color, and off I go. It’s like everything is still in my head, because I can’t see it.
No fear. No judgement. All production.
