There comes a time....

When you gotta trust that you have all the tools you need.

Even if you don't have the entire story down pat.

Even if  you're not quite sure what your characters are up to.

When you realize that trying to plan any longer will make your head explode, then what course of action have you?

Well, to actually write, of course.

Dantere's Story (which I finally found a title for!), here I come. For the third time.

Wish me luck.

Good luck!! You're right--sometimes it's just time to dive in, but that doesn't make it easy.

(I love your blog heading, by the way!)

GO FOR IT! Half the fun of getting started is seeing where the unexpected twists and turns take you - just ask my Aeserion characters, and you'll know what I mean, lol!

We can has extracts sometime? I'd love that :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that picture at the bottom MADE MY DAY! Oh my gosh, that was hilarious. And good luck! I, for one, can't plan or else I never can continue. It must be a weird disease or something. Ican'tplanoroutlineitis. Or something to that effect. Anyway, good luck!

Thank you! And so true!

hehe... and yes, I'll get an excerpt out asap... whatever that means :P

I used to never do anything without planning, but I'm learning to find this weird balance between pantser and outliner. :P And glad you liked the picture! It killed me, too.
