I know I've been working on my Dreamcasters novel FOREVER, but the ending has totally eluded me--until now! I finished outlining the final incarnation of it tonight with a cool Google program called Google Keep. It took me two hours just to transfer all of my paper notes into a digital outline, but it helped me work out all the details. It's all figured out now: character arcs, plot, theme, subplots, and an awesome ending. I'm so excited!

Here's what it looks like (this is almost a completely different plot from the original I outlined by hand a year ago).

I've decided to try and write this in a somewhat different manner than what might be considered traditional. For the first draft, I'm only going to write in scenes that mainly consist of dialogue and really important description. No narration. No transitions. I just want to capture the feeling of it and get all the moments down on paper. Then I'll organize them and stitch them all together with narration once the whole thing is sitting in front of me. It's worth a shot, and hopefully it will keep me from getting too bogged down. I just want to get it out fast and go from there.

That said, I'd love any help I can get staying on track. You know, poking, checking in to make sure I'm writing, that sort of thing. I have some extra free time right now, and I want to spend it productively rather than watching ridiculously bad movies on Netflix. In return, I will do the same for you! I can be relentless with anyone other than myself. :XD:

P.S. We need a tiered internet system, and to reach the highest level you must write a grammatically correct short story about someone slaying a dragon. Bonus points for satire.

I like to consider myself a nerd with class--not so much because I'm classy but because I enjoy the classic things in life. I'm the kind of person who notices all the little specks of beauty and inspiration that tend to hide just out of sight everywhere we look, but I've been known to overlook giant billboards. I'm passionate about living a life of creativity and enjoy writing, design, photography, and architecture to name a few of my favorites.

I'm also a professional dog trainer. I bet that's a twist you didn't see coming! My dogs (and my clients' dogs) are incredibly smart, and they're always challenging me to find new and creative training methods and invent new tricks. They really are man's best friends. And let's face it, parkour is more fun with a border collie!
