After a few stuttering starts I am finally back on track writing my story.
I have wanted to write a book for years, but never really had the confidence. Then last year you may remember that I started with a mind map or several on paper. Then it sort of got stuck there as I got bogged down with detail of the mind map and lost my confidence.
Then just before Christmas I decided to give it a go again. I transferred the work I did onto an electronic mind map with much less detail.
I finished this map yesterday. This time I decided to write an overview of my story using the map as a reference point to develop the story.
I started writing up the overview this evening using google docs. As it gives me the flexibility to write when the feeling grabs me, and I can then go back to the map to remind me of any details I may forget.
Now I know I may falter again, I also know that I can adapt my approach and go again if it becomes a struggle again. My reason to write is stronger than my reason not to.
