So, I have been researching and I continue to find the slogan "By failing to plan, you are planning to fail." I am getting the hint and I am trying to learn how to plan out my stories after writing from a free style point of view since the beginning of my writing for fun. I realize that building my characters and plotting the story will allow me to hold a readers attention and I want to have the reader remember my story.
Mainting my commitment to planning will be my challenge and my chance to prove that I can change my ways for a better script. I will give this a try and keep my mind open as I am writing too. I have read and spoken to writer's that say that they do not plan what they write and that they are doing fine.All I know is that after I write free style for a while, my fingers stop typing and I lose myself in everyday life in days, months and even years pass by before I attempt to finish the story. It's time for change and I know it. I just hope that I will survive the planning and the plotting without having ADHD and lose focus.
I have found these web sites that I am fishing for information and hope that this may be useful to another writer if needed. http://www.writing-world.com/fiction/novelplot.shtml, http://ezinearticles.com/?How-to-Build-a-Character-For-a-Novel&id=2267921, http://www.scribblepad.co.uk/writing-a-novel-building-your-characters-backgrounds.html
