Inspirational Journeys Presents: 3 Tips for Repurposing Dump Scenes in your Writing

To all you fiction writers out in the blogosphere, here are three things you can do to repurpose your dumped scenes;

Dump your scenes in groups, according to a side character’s POV or a plot sequence. For example, if you have four scenes with one of your secondary characters, group them together, so you can pull them from your notebook or junk journal for use in a separate document.

Place your pieced together scene groups in separate documents to rewrite later. For example, I have a document simply called, Shelly’s story where I put scenes featuring my secondary character, so I can write her story later.

Use the scenes or chapters you’ve grouped together in their separate documents, to write a separate story or group of stories that coincide with your full-length novel. You can either put them together in a collection, or if you have longer pieces, such as novellas or novelettes, you can publish them as single titles and/or put them together in a collection later on.

Original poetry: The Removal of Fallen Stones

The following poem is one that was written in the voice of my shadowy character, who follows Becca as she takes her Journey of Faith. I hope you enjoy it.

I take the fallen stones away
In order for my charge to see
The words carefully engraved upon the rock
Lying before her to set her free
From fear and pain to give her a clue
and help her solve the mystery
which will uncover the truth she seeks
In the midst of her divine journey.

Hugs,
Ann

Changing Point of View During the Editing Process


Hello everyone in the blogosphere,
I have a couple of writing tips to share, one of which is changing the point of view of your novel during the editing process. I wrote an entire book in Third Person, but my main character told me in no uncertain terms that she needed me to let her tell her story, at sometime after 4 AM on February 20, 2020. That same afternoon, I started rewriting Chapter one in First person. As I did so, I realized that my Main Character’s questions could be written in the narration of the story, instead of internal dialogue in italics.
The second tip, after you’ve decided which POV is the right fit for your book, is to ask yourself why elements of your story and your characters develop the way they do.

Inspirational Journeys Presents: The Three-act Story Structure

Hello everyone,
In today’s blog post and podcast episode, we’ll discuss the three-act story structure. Before we get started, I want to ask you a couple of important questions. You don’t have to answer them now, but I want you to think about them as you read and listen.

What is story structure? Why should you use it when writing fiction?

The story structure is a set of elements used to plot your novel, before you sit down to write. However, if you have written the first draft of your novel, you can use these same tools to revise your story during the editing process.
Depending on how little or how much pre planning you do before you write your short story or novel, your story structure can be as simple or as complex as you want. This plan gives you the basic plot points to use as a road map, while paving the way for creative storytelling.
If you’d like to listen to my explanation of each of the key points below, please listen to the latest episode of Inspirational Journeys:

The Three Act Story Structure

Act 1
This first act consists of the following three elements: The hook, The inciting incident, and the first plot point.

The hook is the opening sentence or paragraph that pulls your readers into the story and keeps them engaged to the end. This hook should do three things: Introduce the protagonist, establish her day to day life, and show her dealing with a normal conflict. Remember the post I did on Character development? You may want to learn more about your protagonist, before you write the opening hook. However, some writers develop their characters as they write. You can change your hook during edits, if you’re a true pantser or you write the bare bones of a plot like I do. Remember, the conflict you introduce in the hook is the element that moves your story forward. You won’t have a story if everything stays the same as it did when you started out.

The inciting incident is the situation that sets your story into motion. This beat gives your character a sense of adventure. For example, something must happen to make your character react in a way that moves the story forward. It is important to note that your protagonist may not grab the opportunity presenting itself in this beat, because it takes her out of her comfort zone. Some sort of internal fear or flaw holds her back.

Resources:

Your Character’s Greatest Fear

The first plot point, is the part of the story, where the character has become heavily involved in the point of conflict. In some cases, the inciting incident and the first plot point are the same beat. However, in other stories, there are extra scenes to build up to this point of no return, which leaves the character no choice, but to get into the action of the story. In this first plot point, the steaks are too high for your protagonist to refuse to take the opportunity presented to her. The first plot point should take place within the first fifteen to twenty-five percent of your story.

Resources:

How to Determine Your Character’s Goal

Act 2

The second act is the middle build where your story escalates. It includes the following elements: the pre-midpoint action, the midpoint, and the post mid-point action.

The pre-midpoint is where the protagonist moves forward within the story, though she may not understand the reason for her actions. She tries her best to avoid meeting or coming into conflict with the villain. This is the beat that takes place before the big game changer brings a whole new plot twist into the story. However, your protagonist will face many trials during this plot point. Some of her conflict could be with her friends, her own internal conflict, or road blocks placed by the antagonist. For information about the pre midpoint action, click on the links below:
The Four Main Types of Epic Antagonists
How to Determine Your Character’s Story Goal

The midpoint, is where the protagonist gets a little too close to the truth and his or her efforts are discovered by the villain. At this point, your main character is unable to ignore the danger your villain and/or his cronies pose to her and her loved ones. Therefore, she must face the conflict head on and fight against the evil forces. This is the game changer, which heightens the steaks in your story. Click on these resources to learn more:

How to Raise the Stakes in Your Story

The post mid-point action, is the point at which the protagonist is ready to meet the villain head on, while striving to get what she wants. There are several plot points or scenes between the post mid-point and the third act that ramp up the action. These scenes may include unexpected twists and turns leading up to your story’s climax. Your Protagonist must face her enemy to protect supporting characters that are close to her. But watch out, for there will be a loss that throws a monkey wrench into her mission.

The Pre-Write Project: Prep Your Masterful Story

Act 3

The third and final act includes the following key elements to finish the story: The dark night of the soul, The climax, and the resolution.

The Dark night of the soul is where the protagonist loses something or someone near and dear to her. This loss can almost derail your main character’s mission, but the journey isn’t over at this point, the only thing for her to do is keep moving forward and fight to the end. Here’s where her central fear or flaw will come back to bite her. This short but powerful beat is the point at which the steaks ramp up, you remind your reader of your protagonist’s power, and complete her development as the story’s hero.

Resources:

The climax, is the point at which the protagonist confronts the villain. She also conquers her central flaw or fear.

Resources:

How to Craft Riveting Internal Conflict
What is the Role of Theme in a Story’s Climax?

The resolution, is where all the loose ends of your story are tied up. If the conflict with your antagonist has not yet been resolved, this is one of several loose ends that are tied up. Your character faces her central fear or flaw, and finds a much more positive normality in her life. This norm is better than the one she started out with at the beginning of your story.

Please note, I am working on a mystery as I write this, therefore this genre is the one in which I give examples to explain the key elements of story structure in the podcast episode linked above. Each genre is different, therefore your structure will very from story to story, though the same principals apply.

Tell me, what kind of writer are you? Do you completely pants your stories, with no regard to story structure in the first draft? Do you heavily outline your story, with each beat or key element strategically outlined, or are you a pantser with a plan? Do you simply write the bare bones of your story and allow your characters and your muse to drive the story from these foundational points? How do you use the three act story structure in your own novel writing? Leave your answers in the comments below, or visit my contact page to send me an email at:
https://annwritesinspiration.com/contact

I hope this lesson on story structure has been helpful in either the planning stage of your novel or during the editing process. I’ve found the breakdown of each beat, within each act helpful in my own writing.
Until next time, happy writing and God bless.
Hugs,
Ann

My Five-Step Writing Process

Hello everyone in the Blogosphere,
Today I’d like to share with you my five-step writing process. As you read the steps below, remember that each person’s process is different and you can revert back to previous steps if necessary. If you want to listen to my explanation of this process in greater detail, Please check out my latest episode of Inspirational Journeys:

Step 1: Plotting

This step is great for both the extensive outliner and the pantser with a plan. Some authors take this writing prep time to do research, get in some free writing to brainstorm ideas in a journal or notebook, whether digitally or by hand. If you’re a visual person, you may want to do a bit of mind mapping. For some authors, outlining is key to their success, while others find a story board useful for gathering their ideas. For me, plotting is simply writing down the bare bones of a story idea, which may be inspired by a dream or some other means, in my journal or in the notes app on my phone.

Step 2: Drafting

Here’s where the fun begins for some, and maybe not so much for others. It’s time to create your project, whether it be novel, nonfiction book, professional article, or personal essay for your blog or some other publication. For me, this is the fun part, because I get to build on the plotting I did at the beginning of this process. However, I may go back to that first step to do more brainstorming, when I get stuck or have a case of writers block.

Step 3: Revising

After your first draft is complete, the revision stage is where your WIP can be developed into a beautiful piece of writing. During this process, I dump scenes that don’t work in my journal, but you can also create a file or a folder in your writing software for such scenes, as you may want to pull from them later for a future story. After I do my scene dumping, I write new scenes that fit my story. If you like to write your WIP out of order, you can also spend time making sure your scenes flow in a linear fashion. I also add new elements and change dialogue to enhance my WIP, thus keeping my readers engaged.

Step 4: Editing

Many authors may see revising and editing as one in the same. However, I prefer to separate them, because after the first round or two of revision, I can go over the manuscript with a fine-tooth comb. Here’s where I cut out as many extraneous words as possible and correct spelling, punctuation, sentence structure etc. After you’ve done as much self-editing as possible, the next part of this step is either sending your manuscript out to beta readers, hiring a professional editor or both.

Step 5: Publishing and Book Marketing

After you’ve taken your book as far as you can go through the editing step, you have a wide range of options to choose from. You can format your manuscript or hire a professional to do the formatting for you, which is what I did. After formatting is complete, you have the option of where you want to distribute your eBooks, what print on demand publisher you want to use etc. If you don’t want to go that route, you can also submit your book to small publishing houses or pitch it to agents to possibly get a book deal with a traditional publisher. Remember, that once the book is in the hands of readers, it’s up to you to promote your book, no matter what publishing option you choose.

Feel free to use this process as a whole or in part to help you create your own process. Learning from authors in your community and writing/marketing experts, will help you figure out what works for you. Until next time, happy writing.

Love and prayers,
Ann

MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Cynthia McGregor…

Multi-published author and freelance editor Cynthia MacGregor can claim over 100 books of hers that have been published since 1993, when her first book came out. And that total doesn’t include books she’s ghostwritten for clients. She writes for both adults and kids; and oddly, while her books for adults are almost entirely nonfiction, her books for kids are predominantly fiction. She works 7 days a week, with time off for church on Sundays, and puts in long hours every day. People who know her call her “the Energizer bunny.” She just keeps going and going. Cyn, as she likes to be called, loves her work and her life and says, “There’s no one in the world I’d want to trade lives with.”

Our featured book is entitled Wisdom from a Happy Woman – book 2

Book Description:

This motivational/inspirational book is a follow-on to Book 1 of the same title and is composed of short, thoughtful, uplifting passages—they’re not really essays; they’re shorter than that and not at all ponderous as an essay can often be.

Excerpt (optional):

WITHOUT DREAMS, WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE HAVE?

Dreams are the jet engines that help our hopes take flight. Dreams—it is not night dreams we are talking about here, but wishes and hopes—propel us into adventures and accomplishments we might not otherwise reach for. Without dreams, either we have no goals at all or puny ones at best.

Are you content to plod through life, drifting from day to day just getting by and seeing what tomorrow brings—which is probably “more of same”? Are you so devoid of wishes and dreams (or have you totally given up hope of seeing them come to fruition, to the extent that you’ve abandoned them), that you don’t try to improve your life in any aspect?

Even if you have a decent job, career, or profession, earn a steady income, and have no reason to worry about losing your position—even if you’re in a good relationship, whether or not you’re legally married, and you’re happy with the way things are…even if you live in a comfortable home, be it a rural farmhouse, suburban house or condo, urban apartment or loft—even if you have all these things, isn’t there something more you would like?

Dream it—and then reach for it.

Maybe you’d like to live on a houseboat. Maybe you’d like to travel to a far-off, exotic site—a rainforest, an Old-World city filled with ancient ruins, an Oriental location reasonably untouched by modern civilization, a mountaintop that only a brave and daring few have scaled. Maybe you’d like to see an invention of yours reach the marketplace and become the next hot sensation. Maybe you’d like to start a new charity or other organization that promotes a cause. Maybe you’d like to write the much-vaunted Great American Novel (although I think Mark Twain has already laid claim to that achievement—but maybe you’d like to write TGAN for this century). Or, if not The Great American Novel, then at least a best-seller.

But how will you accomplish any of these things if you don’t aspire to them?

It all starts with a dream.

3 Tips for Making Your Book Babies Shine

Hello everyone in the blogosphere,
Today I have another writing related post to bring you. If you’d like to hear the latest episode of the Inspirational Journeys podcast, where I talk about the tips I’m bringing you, and share my reason behind these tips, please visit:

Last night, I started reading a book called Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead, by Cynthia MacGregor, when the Holy Spirit convicted me to revise A Journey of Faith: A Stepping Stones Mystery. I’m glad I started on it, because I found that one of my character’s name was misspelled, along with other obvious mistakes in the book that I was unaware of at the time of publication. If you find yourself in the same situation, here are three tips you can use, to make your book babies shine.

Don’t Rush the Publishing Process

This holds true, especially for aspiring authors. I know you’ve finished your story and you’re excited about getting your book into the hands of readers, but you want to revise and polish your manuscript before it goes out on the market. You only get one chance to shine, so you want to make it the best it can be. I learned this the hard way when I made my first publishing mistake. Since then, my writing has improved, and I’ve gotten good feedback about my book. However, I relied too heavily on the publisher to make sure it was in tiptop shape. I learned a valuable lesson when I started editing my book last night. No matter who publishes your book, it’s your baby; therefore, it’s up to you to go over your manuscript with a fine-toothed comb and make sure you’re satisfied with the end result.

Check all Proof Copies for Mistakes

If you’re working with a small press, or you’re self-publishing, make sure each proof copy of your book is as error free as possible. Taking this step will save you time and money.

It Never Hurts to Edit Previously Published Work

All you Indie authors can take advantage of this tip, especially if you’ve uploaded an eBook. Paperbacks can be updated as well, but they would be published as new editions to your book. Not only am I working through this process for my own book, I have a friend who has updated her four of her Bible devotionals after publishing her fiction work and poetry.

Now that I have shared my tips with you, I challenge you to revisit your previously published manuscripts. Are you satisfied with them? Do they need a major overhaul, or just a simple minor fix? If the answer is no to any of these questions, then you may want to consider reworking them if possible. However, if you’ve answered yes to any of them, then you’re good to go.

I hope these tips will help you during, or after your publishing process. Stay tuned for a special guest interview with the author mentioned at the top of this post. Until next time, happy writing.
Blessings,
Ann

– Rise of the Papilion trilogy: The Purple Morrow, Wolf’s Bane, Berserker

Book Descriptions:

Book 1: The Purple Morrow:
The Rovers were sent to decimate the Southernlands. Instead, they awoke its savior.

Ten years have passed since the Rover army tore through the Southernlands, leaving behind a trail of devastation and death. Most believed the attacks were random acts of brutality. The wise, however, knew the truth: the Rovers sought to destroy the one thing powerful enough to thwart their conquest. They were searching for the Papilion.

A new commander, bent on completing the mission left unfinished by his predecessors, leads the Rovers back into the Southernlands. Fierce and determined, he comes armed with a precious artifact and a secret purpose.

While the Southernlands reel under the new terror, the Purple Morrow, a harbinger of hope, appears to Jeru, an unsuspecting and solitary clan hunter. Finding himself enmeshed in a series of incredible events beyond his control, Jeru is compelled to take the first steps towards discovering his ultimate destiny.

Book 2: Wolf’s Bane:
The Purple Morrow is destroyed. However, its promise endures in the form of a champion, mankind’s only hope against the destruction spawned by an ancient, sinister evil.

The Rovers have invaded the Southernlands, sending its inhabitants fleeing for respite. Waylaid in a defunct desert town, and reeling from revelations about his past, a powerful, emerging evil lures Kelen to seek vengeance. Though he resists, Kelen soon learns that the Shadow Man will not relent until a terrible, ancient claim is fulfilled.

As Marathana quails under the burgeoning darkness, Jeru’s clan looks to him to lead. Jeru, however, knows his path lies elsewhere. Leaving everything behind, he braves the Badlands, a hellish desertland only the hardiest dare tread, to awaken the latent spirit of the Papilion within him. Jeru learns much in that place of desolation, including one truth which could turn destiny on its head. Now more than ever, Kelen, the Wolf of the North, threatens everything he holds dear. Jeru must choose: save the people he loves, or sacrifice them to save Marathana.

Book 3: Berserker:
“Love…can destroy, it can build, or it can do both at once…”

With the Papilion’s whereabouts unknown, the Shadow pursues its plan for Marathana’s destruction. In control of the Northern tribes and strengthened by allies in the Deep Southernlands, the Shadow prepares to unleash its ultimate weapon, the berserker.

Jeru’s sudden reappearance reveals the presence of a powerful, new will at work. Blessed by the Lightbearer and supported by a ragtag group of survivors and unexpected allies, Jeru prepares to lead the small army into enemy territory.

As war breaks, Kelen and Jeru clash one last time. One seeks to destroy, the other to save. The strongest will prevail, sealing Marathana’s ultimate fate.
