So far, I’ve written the first five chapters (one chapter behind) of Moondust. And so far, all of the ideas that I’ve created and outlined seem to fit well. They seem to make sense, heighten tension, and flesh out the characters.
Of course when I’ve completed this first draft that may change. And that’s okay. Why?
Because ideas are versatile and recyclable. Author Tony Hillerman got it right when he said:
“A writer is like a bag lady going through life with a sack and a pointed stick collecting stuff.”
