3. JAMES SCOTT BELL!! With his book still fresh in my mind, I had the pleasure of receiving four hours of masterful instruction (which works well for this visual learner). Later that evening I stalk…er, tracked down Mr. Bell and asked for a picture. Here he is!
I can hardly wait to sit down and start plotting. I want to draw my own three-act suspension bridge (visual!). The thought of dozens of colorful index cards on my wall simply tickles my toes!! Plotting, outlining, structuring – that’s the language this left-brainer likes to read.
I guess I can officially call myself “recovered” now – I finished reading the book, the mental block is down, and I’m excited to write fiction again. I achieved my goal. Now to start setting new goals…
QUESTION: After you’ve achieved your goals, how do you set the next ones?
