You shouldn’t go against your nature

Or at least I shouldn’t. It’s been a few weeks since I finished my novel and well, it’s sat there. I had this glorious plan to make a in-depth assessment of what needed to be fixed and where and why, and this complicated way of keeping track of everything.

There may have been flow charts. Ghastly I know.

I’m not a planner. I’m not neat. Those of you who know me in person know that when I do plan, it’s simple. Both in the amount of planning I do, and in the depth of plan. I figure out the details as I go, or I never go.

So I’m embracing my own nature, the impulsive, the unorganized, the do what needs doing and clean up the mess later part of my nature. I’m going to have some idea of what I’m doing because I know this novel in my head. I don’t need some massive in depth break down. I know where the big problems are; I know where the medium problems are, and the little problems are everywhere.I wasn’t making a plan, I wasn’t waiting until the right time to make a plan, I was straight up procrastinating.So tonight, I work on this beast. Start working on the big problems. And that’s that.Maybe once all I’ve got left are the little problems, I’ll print off the thing and take notes, but for now, lets fill some plot holes.
