Two ways to be productive: good.

I think that as long as you end up with an arc you're pleased with, you will be able to fill in whatever is missing (narrator, description, dialogue), but starting with dialogue sounds really good, because that forces things to happen, whereas narrator and description can be forced into place more.

A book is rather different from glazing painting; sections that end up feeling overworked can get cut and replaced without needing to start over entirely.

And also you do not have to write any baffling peonies. :-)

(I love the magnets and yay for a magnetic whiteboard!!!)


KC - you are the one who inspired me to get the magnetic whiteboard.


May you have no regrets. :-)
