Re: Finishing your plot
I found that planning is essential for me (Hi, my name is Arkose and I am a life long procrastinator and non-planner). I put together a rather large flow sheet with all major characters. Every chapter, I list what the character is doing. I do this to keep track of everything and to keep my mind focus. I have found some major problems by having it written down and have worked through them. I already have changed two main characters based on how their personalities came across in the first couple of chapters. I expect that most changes will come and I welcome them, but the flow chart has made thing so much easier. I love it and recommend it.
I also love asking WWJCD (What Would Jackie Chan Do), to free my mind from any stress or reservations from an upcoming scene. How can you not have fun asking yourself that question?
