No? OK, maybe I'm the only one with chatty toes, but beside the point, it's fall!
And you know what that means!
Pumpkins. Are. Everywhere.
And it's time to knit cozy things!
And write with warm drinks!
I've set myself a deadline to finish my outline by October 1st! And I will start writing my new WIP then.
So far, I've outlined 8 chapters and my outline is already 34 (single spaced) pages long. I'm doing this new thing where I kind of am writing as I outline. I've been referring to it as plotlining--which doesn't really describe what I'm doing, but it sounds cool. Basically it's going to be either the world's longest outline, or a miniature almost novella-version of my book.
The benefit of this is I'm able to edit plots and work out kinks as I go and see how everything works without actually writing the whole book. I'm very much the sort of person who needs to write out something before I can tell if it will work, which means I often have a lot of revision work to do. But this time..not so much. I'm working out my book's issues in real time.
Since I'm on chapter 9 of my outline/novella/plotline/thing...I have A LOT of work to do! But I have my favorite season here to back me up.

How's everyone else enjoying the season? How are you all doing with your current projects?
