But no really. My notes for it are all over the piece. My last WIP was a murder mystery, and I could get away with not knowing exactly who did what from the very beginning. It let me leave behind more ambiguous clues and gave me a little more freedom with what they needed to discover and when they needed to discover it.
I don’t normally tend to write out of order, but I do, I write closely out of order. More like 5, 1, 2, 3, 4 than 5, 17, 1, 6, 20, 16.
I’m trying my hand at sci-fi this time around and unlike my murder mystery, set in today’s world, I have some things to figure out. And those things are holding me up.
I’m wondering at what point the preparation for the piece is holding me up from writing it. I want to explore it, but I only have two ideas for scenes in my head and one of them is definitely a middle of the road sort of scene and won’t make sense until after a major reveal. But in the meantime… I’m still trying to figure out those reveals.
