30 minute writing revelation

Lovely followers, you might find me writing more about fiction than fashion these days as I have set a goal to complete the second draft of my young adult novel in the next six months.

My main character has four coming of age dilemmas and from 12:00 to 12:30 a.m. on 9/13, I decided to tackle the parental issue.

The novel opens with an explosion between the parents, but I realize (thanks ctitique group) that I left too many unanswered questions on the table. Why that night? Why did the fight lead to a split? I won’t tell you the anwers, but I will say that I came up with some answers.

How? By forcing myself to write non-stop for 30 minutes. In creative writing circles it’s called “free-writing”. I used old fashioned pen and paper, just letting the thoughts flow from brain to finger to paper.

Afterwards, I chronicled the experience here in my blog using my trusty Samsung Galaxy II and the WordPress app.

Let’s hope this is the beginning of a new trend.
