Why Outlines are Important and Updates on War In Flesh

I spent an enjoyable bit of time yesterday writing a good chunk of the first chapter of War In Flesh. Now, though I’m wondering if it shouldn’t be the second chapter. See, this is what happens when you don’t do a complete outline before diving into the work. I really should put down the chapter and write up the outline before I go any further. Then I’ll at least have an idea of what I want to have happen where and when in the book. Sure it may be more “organic” to just write as it comes but it’s a lot sloppier.

I’m still working out the details for the crisis the characters will face. I have the basic idea and some of the underpinnings for it. Lately I’ve been toying with the particulars of sub plots to bring it together and make it exciting and suspenseful.

Today, no more excuses, I will just have to get In The Flesh formatted for the Nook. I kind of put it on the back burner because it was taking up so much time trying to get everything to space correctly but now I simply must do it. I will update when it goes live for the Nook and I apologize to my Nook readers for the delay. Also I have not had the chance to borrow my friends Mac but I will try to do so this weekend and get In The Flesh up on iTunes. K.

About K. L. Zolnoski

I've been an author all of my life, I just didn't realize it until the Great Recession and I got laid off. With no job on the horizon and a need to keep myself engaged in something productive I began to seriously write. Oh, I've always written. I've written in secret. I've written fan fiction. I've written when I was too embarrassed to let anyone else, save my long-suffering sister see it. All that and it never occurred to me I was a writer until circumstances forced me to try my hand at self publishing. Sometimes it is funny how the universe has to show you what is right under your nose.
