This weekend I started the opening scene of my WIP. I didn't get a ton of words written, but I feel as if I've put my toe into the first crack of the rock face.
The first line isn't great. I'm waiting for inspiration to dawn on a great, gripping, interesting, engaging first line. Since it hasn't come to me yet, I just went ahead and dove into the rest of the scene. For the first time, I breathed a little life into a setting. I made a name into a character, gave her something she wants, the reason she wants it, and what might keep her from getting it.
I love this process.
So, how about you? Where are you in the project you're working on?
