I’m done with steps 1 and 2 of my writing process. I’ll be spending the next week marching through step 3 which is expanding my scene paragraph summaries into 5 paragraphs. These 5 paragraphs are a brain dump of details I may or may not include down the road: scraps of descriptions, dialogue, interior monologues and such. Still in the telling phase. The exposition. Step 4 is when the showing, the narrative begins.
My writing process, including a screenshot of my Google.doc I’m using for NaNoWriMo 2022:
Step 1: Write one complete sentence summarizing each scene,
Step 2: Turn each sentence into a five sentence paragraph.
Step 3: Turn each paragraph into five paragraphs. (I’m writing step 3 in red to help it stick out)
Step 4: Turn the five paragraphs into a narrative (Not started yet)
