Pimentelius | 2 comments Hi all after realizing it would probably be easier to finish the 50000 word novel rather than creating a writers' group of 5, I came across a post that mentioned this Goodreads group. I find it awesome. So, I'll be posting here all my progress in this Coursera course. Here are the links if you care to spare a few minutes:

Pimentelius | 2 comments Miss Liavali, thank you very much for taking the time to have a look at my progress. Yes, I recognize I'm not giving up much, for 2 reasons: First, I still don't have the whole idea of where this is going. And also, to somehow (I hope) interest the reader in knowing a little bit more. I'm reviewing the Chapter 1 and I really look forward to share it with you. Thanks again!

Liavali | 237 comments Hi Pimentelius, I know the feeling of not knowing really where it is going yet!! I wrote a huge part of my story before figuring out what the story would be.

It is fine to leave it until you see where the story takes you, but just so you know a little about the logline and the story dramatic question, they are not for us the readers, they are actually very important to the writer.

I had not worked out what my story was when I joined coursera and writing the logline and dramatic question really helped make up my mind about what the story would be about. And that helped to be able to keep writing because i know where the story is going,

Maybe after writing for a while and feeling your way into the story if you are not sure where to go with it, try writing the logline and dramatic question just for yourself, it can be really helpful to help you see where you are going,
