Welcome to my weekly recap where I share what happened last week
The featured section for this week is my…
This is going to be a short update.
Everyone at home was sick so I didn’t accomplish much last week.
Since some of the wonderful writers that are participating in A BOOK’S GENESIS don’t have blogs
I’m very happy I did get to create A Book’s Genesis Goodreads group! 🙂
where we could all chat about our WIPs
Look at the wonderful group of writers and friends that already joined!
Great writing talent here! YAAAYY! 🙂
Juliette Harper [Pen name of Authors of Descendants of the Rose],
Kathy @ A View to A Book [writer of YA & New Adult novels],
Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight [working on a dystopian],
Pamela @ A Writers Tale [working on Wonderland Guardians Series],
and to keep us all grounded in the arts of book promotion we have Lola @ Lola’s Reviews!
The second thing I did was to reach my Camp NaNoWriMo 15K week 3 milestone! 🙂
My reward for week 3 will be a v-neck t-shirt. Not sure which one yet.
Leave a comment and help me choose one!
The ultimate 20K words prize will be Scrivener 🙂
So talking about our new Goodreads group, Camp NaNoWriMo and Scrivener. I did some outlining last week!
My first two weeks of “pantsing” took me to the uncharted waters of my book 3 so I had to stop writing and outline a little. I was using the snowflake method and I had to post this questions for my wonderful writers friends to help me! I was hoping you could help me too! 🙂
Hello kids [we are all kids at heart right?]!
I wanted to ask my wonderful veteran writers a question…
[Especially you La La! 🙂 since you write middle grade :)]
How do you go about determining young characters motivations?
I’m doing the outlining snowflake method for my book 3 and I’m in the step of determining
the storylines of one of the characters, which is a one summary sheet that tells:
1) The character’s name
2) A one-sentence summary of the character’s storyline
3) The character’s motivation (what does he/she want abstractly?)
4) The character’s goal (what does he/she want concretely?)
5) The character’s conflict (what prevents him/her from reaching this goal?)
6) The character’s epiphany (what will he/she learn, how will he/she change?
7) A one-paragraph summary of the character’s storyline
A few of my characters are fairly young (12 years old) always find it hard to determine young characters motivation until something happens to them.
Like… WTH was Harry Motivation until Hagrid came for him and told him he was a wizard???? What did Rowling wrote as his motivation for book 1 when he was only 11 years old??
So what do you think my reader, writer and blogger friend?
what are good young characters’ motivations?
My dear bloggers kids friends… DO NOT miss the next Blogger Interviews with Michelle @ Because Reading is Better than Real Life and Lola @ Lola’s Reviews. Two very organized bloggers. Let’s pick their brains! Let’s discover how do they DO IT ALL! 🙂
Tell me you did not miss my 5 SUPERNOVAS review of Red Rising!!!
YOU DID???? oh… you were sick! Had tests at school! A horde of dragons invaded your living room..
Ok , ok life happens! Here is it again
Not much progress here. I got distracted with a… ahem… hum… romance book that was a whisper! you did not hear that 🙂 So I still have the same LOOONG list of 24 ARCs
From the Library
Also all these wonderful books went back to the library unread!
What about you? How was your week? What are you reading now?
What ARCs do you have pending? What are you reviewing next?
Leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
