To plot, to plan, to outline…

It’s a lovely Sunday morning, and I’m writing on my patio.  My kitties are roaming throughout the backyard while I am impatiently waiting for the coffeemaker to HURRY UP AND BREW THE COFFEE!!!

As you may be able to tell, I’m not a particularly patient person – I tend to just do things (especially when it comes to writing), versus planning, plotting, researching……which leads to a question I have for you.  Are you a plotter or a pantser?

I am a pantser – I typically get an idea, sit down, and let fly my fingers across the keys of my laptop.  Unfortunately, I discovered in November of last year (while participating in NANOWRIMO) that this process doesn’t work when it came to the novel I attempted to work on then!

The basic premise of the story is fantastic – the problem is the setting.  You see, the story needs to be set in Dublin, Ireland……and I’ve never been to Dublin, Ireland.  I don’t know the names of the roads, or any of the interesting buildings/sights one might see as they are being pursued (and need to duck into, etc.).  So, I will try my hand at outlining (and researching) for this particular novel.

I have a book to help guide me through the process…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A book to show me some visuals of Dublin…..

And a fantastic map that shows the roads, historic buildings, pubs, etc. of Dublin…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m off to begin my journey through this new “land of Oz”.  Any suggestions   you might have for me would be GREATLY appreciated!
