Deep in the writing cave: old dog, new tricks
I decided with my 15-book series to try to plot the books. I NEVER plot my books, but with 15 books, I think I need to make sure all my plot lines intersect. So I grabbed "The Writer's Journey" (which I skimmed once) and am now looking at the building blocks of the book.
I'm worried I may try to force some elements of the story into that structure, so I'm treading cautiously. But in other cases, I can see where I need one of those plot elements and I'm missing it.
So here's a word of ?wisdom? ?caution? -- don't be afraid to go back and try something new. You'll never know what you discover.
