As I am in the early stages of the story, big changes are sometimes necessary. The old outline I had been working with did not do justice to the overall story, and being a bit of a perfectionist, I decided to rewrite the outline. The result has been a boost in my ability to picture scenes and story progression. The downside is that major parts have changed and I had to rewrite the first chapter and other chapters.

Overall, even with the rewrites, this process has gotten me back on track and may set the finish date for part one a bit sooner. As it stands, I have a goal to finish the first full draft of part one – Rise of Dissidence – by no later than Thanksgiving, November 2011. If this goal is to be accomplished, I need to write an average of 7,700 words a month. We will see if I can keep the pace up.

  1. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my story. I have to get it just right or I can’t go on. The whole story has to flow together, it ties the people, places, and events together to tell the story in my heart. When that is accomplished it creates a picture, in the mind, so vivid, that no movie screen could even touch on it’s brilliance. This is my goal, and that is why in this case, I am somewhat of a perfectionist.
