Still Thinking.

A minimal, pathetic 350 words today, but I'm still thinking about the plotline.
I got so far as to boot up the Write it Now software (well worth the £20 it cost) and start mocking up a structure. I find that two or three days setting up a good structure for a story assists a hundredfold when I come to writing it Gone are the days when I could 'wing it' and begin writing without knowing where I was going (A Gathering of Gods). I used to use Writer's Dreamkit (Beasts and Angels, Mourning Light) but this program is so much better, even if there are a few tweaks I'd like on it (being able to add pictures for one).

So. Currently sitting at 5K/100K still, but optimistic.
