This way I always have milestones that keep me looking ahead and figuring out how I'll get from where I am to the next plot point.

I also have a goal to write every day, even if it's just a little. Sometimes the hardest thing is just to start writing, and once you get going it gets easier. I even write when I don't really feel like it.

Once, my writer's block wouldn't go away even after all the planning and forcing myself to write, and so I backtracked and changed the story. I know some people who even just skip ahead and write a more exciting part of the story first, then come back to the spot they were having trouble with and try again.

Hopefully this helps!(less)

I'm working on the basic plots for each of the novels, which I will then develop in more detail. Without giving too much away, the books will mostly be set in the Andromeda galaxy.(less)

I am very impressed!! And not all of the mysteries are solved by then end, which leaves room for them to be more complex and cool (since they don't have to all fit into one book)! And omg the representation and complex characters are amazing

Brooke Hampton
“Follow your heart and take a chance that you'll be wrong. Take a chance that maybe you'll fuck it all up and everyone will say you're crazy. What's the worst that can happen? Face that fear and accept it. Because to silence your heart and forget your dreams is to die while living. LIVE. Don't let the world scare you into being something you're not. Get out there and risk the unusual or you'll have to settle for the ordinary. So, no-one else has done it before? There is no road map for you to follow? Then, you be the first! Pave the way for someone else. Find your courage and follow your heart.
Be brave, wild one, be brave.”
Brooke Hampton
