I’m posting something every day – a thought or an idea or a target – to try and keep me on target to reach that 50,000 word target!
I – and my potential readers, should have a clear idea where the story is going, and what they want to find out. I think there’ are two storylines which have developed, Thomas’s present, and his memories of things which happened at home six months ago. Both the now story and the family back-home story have to have clear story-lines, so it might be worth taking a little time-out to check whether things make sense!. Since the start, new things and new aspects of of the story have occurred, and in some ways it’s going in different directions – but I must check that I’m not bogged down in a plot which is going nowhere, going backwards, or just wandering off in the wrong direction!
