The other night, Wizard sat in my office chair so I figured, hey if he comes into my office, he should plot with me, right? So I said, “I am this turning point in my book. I can either let my heroine win or lose. What do you think? I mean this is really bugging me, I can’t figure it out. It’s been days!”
Wizard steepled fingers and got all serious. “Have you tried plotting naked?”
And I may have laughed…and then I fired Wizard from plotting for the night. Instead I sent my 200 pages off to a critique partner who sent back four, single spaced, pages of critiques. And not once did she suggest I get naked Now I’m tackling this book like a linebacker. I’m all over it! And also, much to Wizard’s disappointment, I am fully dressed while doing it!
And I just have to add — Wizard is great at plotting when most of the time. But sometimes, he’s such a guy, LOL!
Speaking of guys, here is our Wednesday Worthy Candidate:
So what do you think, is he worthy?

Naked plotting can work. If there are no mirrors, the water in the shower is hot, and you have the house to yourself.
Well? Did she win or lose?
And yes, he’s in my files so he’s worthy. LOLOL

Silver, very true, I think every writer plots in the shower.
The whole turning point has shifted, and I’ll leave the answer at that
Glad you like the guy!

Oh that naughty Wizard ;). Can’t fault a guy for trying :).
I’m sure you figured things out just fine dressed.
This guy isn’t doing it for me.
Hope you have a great evening :).

LOL, Wizards sometimes have a one track mind. And sometimes being distracted is good. ;o)
I’m glad you sent it through to your CP and got it sorted out, though.
Nah, this guy’s not doing it for me. Maybe next week. =o)
