If you only write when you’re inspired you may be a fairly decent poet, but you’ll never be a novelist because you’re going to have to make your word count today and those words aren’t going to wait for you whether you’re inspired or not.
You have to write when you’re not inspired. And you have to write the scenes that don’t inspire you. And the weird thing is that six months later, a year later, you’ll look back at them and you can’t remember which scenes you wrote when you were inspired and which scenes you just wrote because they had to be written next.
The process of writing can be magical. …Mostly it’s a process of putting one word after another."
Do you have any good character outlines?
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! This got lost in a bunch of other asks and I just now noticed it. But hopefully some of these will help:
- 100 Character Development Questions
- Character Development Questionnaire
- In-Depth 30 Day Character Meme
- Character Development Checklist
- Character Creation Sheet
- Character Bio Development
- Character Sheets (this is a masterpost-type thing with lots of links)
- Blank Character Sheet
- Character Creation Form
- Character Questions on my blog :D
Some of these are much more in-depth than others, so you can decide how much prewriting you want/need to do, and go from there.
