Parallels with engineering...  Reply with quote  

Wow, I spent two hours plotting my book last night. I have written 3 chapters and got to the point where I needed to know a little more about what was going on so I started plotting.

I have discovered that working as a Software Engineer has actually stood me in good stead. The problems are different but the feeling you get when you know you've got the right solution is the same if not better.

Anyway, now, except for a few points (one important plot thread), I think I know exactly what happens when and by who and I had to share. The bit I haven't worked out is because I have the general idea and a few solutions but none quite fit how I want them to. The whole process last night felt like when I write songs; it's as though the song is already written and somehow, you just plug into whatever it is that has written it and copy it down. Way cool...is writing this exciting for everyone or is it just me? I don't even care if I write a turkey!

I love a good writing flow and I'm not even a writer. It's just exciting to see a creation start to move on it's own.
