Getting some traction...

The process of rebooting my core story idea has yielded good fruit so far. I can't help but wondering how many other writers have gone through a similar process.

Rebuilding the story around my character rather than the plot has pretty much stripped my original story. Part of me feels like I've abandoned my original story, but the other part of me is reassuring me that this approach feels more natural.

A few nuggets of wisdom from a book titled The 90-Day Novel:

  • Stories are about transformations. The purpose of story is to reveal a transformation.
  • Problems are solved while dilemmas are resolved through a shift in perception.
