Not much writing happening in my house lately.
I've been contemplating how to plot. Today, I started toying with Randy Ingermanson's Snowflake Method (http://www.advancedfictionwriting.com/art/snowflake.php). So far, it's helping enormously (but I'm only really on step 1). Part of me hates to detour from actual writing time, but I think taking the time to think about the overall story, and individual character story lines, is going to be helpful to me. Considering that I've been avoiding the story altogether this summer, I guess any attention the story gets is positive.
I've also come to the conclusion that I need a more substantial conflict and that it needs to rear it's head earlier in the text of the story.
