I need to have some kind of direction when writing a novel. I have to be able to know what is coming up as I’m writing so I don’t miss something or get things out of order. For Null_Pointer, I’m taking time out occasionally to write a few paragraphs about what happens in the next few chapters. You can read along in the outlines and then see if the actual written chapters match what I outlined.
I don’t always follows the outline, but that’s my perogative. It should be interesting to see what I add and what I change as I write. Which is one of the goals of this particuluar blog. To get inside the writer’s mind and see the creative process take flight.
Of course none of these crude outlines will help me write the official outline used to sell the book. That will have to be written after the final draft.
