Typing My Butt OFF! Story purge.

I'm taking 30 seconds to say, I'm not going to post today. (Or post something crafty.) Ever since Monday, when the idea for my next project finally came into focus (and struck me like a bolt of lightning),  I can't seem to type fast enough.  It's coming out of my head so fast, I can barely get the bullet points to the story down.

As you know I've been savoring on this LGBTQ idea for the last two months.  And how to go about writing it just hadn't presented itself.  That is, until I decided to take author, Ellen Hopkins, advice: "write the story that scares you." That's what she told me in NY two months ago, and that is exactly what I am doing. 

I'm 4000 words into it and another 5000 in notes...which brings me to the painful point that, for the first time as a pantser, I'm outlining.

Alright kiddos, I'm out the door and off to make-out with my MS.

Next week I'll talk more on "Writing the Story that Scares You" and what that means to me.
Also, "How a Pantser Can Keep Their Pants on While Outlining."
