Sir Poops and Hair Ball: Insecure Writer’s Group: Bath Tub Fears and Mummsy’s in a Corner

InsecureWritersSupportGroupSPAL: Today, Hair Ball and I will be participating in the Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Group.

HB: Yeah. We hope to encourage, support, whine, beg…get some treats and belly rubs.

SPAL: In return, we’ll give you all some treats and belly rubs, too.

HB: Hey, pansy boy. Tell the nice people how much we hate The Great White Watery Abyss of Torture. We need everyone’s support to stop this madness that Mummsy does to us.

SPAL: Yeah. It makes my heart speed up, and my whole body shakes. Sometimes it gives me the poops.

HB: Me, too. Especially when she sprays us with water.

SPAL: And scrubs our faces.

HB: Yeah. And cleans out our ears.

SPAL: And she tells me I’m going to get brushed to get me into the torture chamber. She knows how much I love the brush.

HB: Well, she tricks me with cookies.

HB and SPAL: Nice people, we need your help. Please don’t let Mummsy put us in The Great White Watery Abyss of Torture ever again. Help us stop the madness.

SPAL: Speaking of Mummsy, she’s written herself into a corner again.

HB: I know. She’s one of those panster types.

SPAL: She’s been working on Book 2, in the Lila’s Journey Series, Killer Stilettos. When she wrote chapter forty-five, a character revealed something.

HB: What does that mean?

SPAL: It means she has now gone back to the very beginning of the story and is doing rewrites.

HB: Is chapter forty-five the last chapter in that book?

SPAL: No. The last chapter hasn’t been written. But Mummsy knows how it ends.

HB: How does she already know the end?

SPAL: ***shrug***

HB: Oh.

SPAL: Anyway, we’ll back tomorrow with Penny the Pawblisher.

HB: Yeah. She’s a superstar.

 

Lots of licks!

  5. Hey, pups, tell your mom that I have written myself into a corner many a time. And my characters have done things late into a novel that mean going back to the very beginning and starting all over again.

    But it's all worth it at the end.

    Hope you get some good treats and belly rubs.

  7. How adorable! And I could totally hear my puppy's voice pleading for me to stop putting him in the great white watery abyss of torture!

    As for writing yourself into a corner, I understand. I've done it before and I have no doubt I will do it again. All i can say is trust in your character's voice and belive that the rewrites will make the story better. Everytime I've allowed my characters to surprise me I've been grateful with the new changes that had to be made, even if I was pissed when I first found out. just keep writing!

  8. That's always fun, isn't it? And you just can't go on until you've fixed it.
    Sorry, pups, you need to be clean.

  10. Maybe you should start a blog just for them. May I venture the name "Dogblog?"

  11. You two and your human, are superstars. Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, thinks this and I have no choice but to agree with her.

    This deluded human thought that "IWSG", meant "I Was Seeking Gary." Yes, I'm devastated!

    Penny's human,

    Gary

  13. Shelly... do you follow a tight outline or do you let you characters flow out and then possibly box you into that corner ?

    cheers, parsnip

    1. I don't outline. Usually what happens is I see the first chapter, or a voice pops into my head and I write. I go with the flow and let my characters lead the way.

Let me know what you think.
