The route is set and and bags are packed. All that's left is to double check the turn-offs and make sure I'm not going down any blind alleys.
I know it is an area of contention for writers. To plot a story or wing it. I can understand the appeal for winging it, but I just write to damn slow. If I have to stop to consider every next move, I'll get lost or bored. It's taken me longer than I wanted to finish my plot. A nagging toothache has not helped the past few days, but if I want this to be my career, I need to put those annoyances aside or deal with them quickly. Time is money and deadlines will not wait for a better day. The tooth is still bugging me but hopefully that will all be dealt with soon and be one less excuse. For now I have my plot to go over and smooth out the details that no longer make sense now that I know where I need to go. I already see that to make some of the final scenes more coherent, I need to set them up better and divulge more information earlier. I think I can do that in the scenes I have but I may have to add a scene. That's what I love about using scene cards. I have them color-coded for who is also in the scene (my main character is in all of them) so I can see who is being used too much or not enough. I can also move things around a lot easier.
One thing that is still stressing me is usually one of the first things I come up with and that's a title. I have a few prospects for a title but nothing has really clicked. I like having a title. It helps me focus on the feel I want for the story. The Banshee's Heart would be a much different story than Brenda the Bawdy Banshee. Hopefully it will come to me before NaNoWriMo starts. I would hate to start and not know what to call it.
