    Okrachoke's Progress Journal

    Discussion in 'Progress Journals' started by Okrachoke, Jan 1, 2017.

    I have a new idea for a story. Today marks the first day of getting it started on "paper". I wrote a couple paragraphs of what I anticipate as the beginning but have decided to take a step back and use the snowflake method. I'm not sure the length this will end up--novella or novel... Hell, maybe even a shory story. I just want to see it to completion.

    I don't have a working title, or good summary of the story yet, so bear with me. I'm hoping for a supernatural southern gothic. My main character is a female in her mid twenties living alone in a small country neighborhood in East Texas. The various neighbors are part of a Satan worshipping cult. They become interested in the main character because they believe she has supernatural connections.

    Hope to finish the first step of the snowflake method tonight--writing a single sentence summary of the story.

    Step one done! One sentence description of overall story. Actually made me have to consider my main characters initial situation. Tomorrow I hope to move to step two: paragraph describing the story. Which is suggested to include setup, disasters (suggested three), and resolution.

    Step 2, paragraph description of book, done. Step 3 is lengthier--page descriptions of each main character. My hope is a character a day. I've got 3-4 main characters thus far, so I'm hoping to finish at/before the weekend.

    Well, got the first characters descriptions done. Started on the second but I've realized I have no clue what his motivations are. Will need to figure this guy out.
