I’ve been fixing up the How To Think Sideways website for the past couple weeks; reformatting, relinking and in a couple of cases revising old products from my shop to put on my new shop, and otherwise doing lots of Working Very Hard While Not Writing, which is what I have always done when I’ve hit a snag.
I hit the snag in World Clinic when I got to Part Two.
Part One, the critical core of worldbuilding for writers, flew. It was fun and glorious every day I worked on it.
But I got about ten pages into Part Two, which is how you actually use all the OTHER stuff, all the stuff people THINK is worldbuilding…
…and hit the “You’re doing it wrong,” wall.
I got my first inkling to day (while taking a shower, of course) of HOW I’m doing it wrong. So that’s good.
Still haven’t figured out how to do it right yet, though.
I’ll only lose about ten pages. But I’m going to have to let it sit a little longer until my Muse and I can get the whole do-it-right part ironed out.
In the meantime, navigation and the product line on How to Think Sideways will benefit.
