can't sleep books will eat me

so we live our lives like fugitives. we were born to live like queens.

I love it when my outline note is "What clever thing happens here?"

Thank you Past Self for all the guidance.

My tactic is whatever works. if one technique isn't working, I do something else. If I have a good idea of where the story is going, I outline. If I don't, I explore. If I feel lost, I go back and outline what's written. I often move back and forth between tactics in one piece.
This is extremely reassuring to read.
This would have worked if I'd figured out what my Monster was before I did my outline, and then outlined around that. But I pantsed the monster and then ended up going "whoops." If I'd figured out earlier in the process that the outline was borked and that I should really sit down and un-bork it, I'd've been fine.

Well. That's a lesson learned for when I do it all again in June. :D This is the first time I've tried something like this, and I decided not to pressure myself over it.
Good work.
Oooh! Why have I never thought of doing an outline of what's already written as a brain jog?!?!?!

My brain just went "click." Maybe I'll actually finish something now. =)
Break a pencil! (legs hurt)
