      Writer problems #X: An unexpected action scene appears and confuses the plot. That's unexpected as in "this wasn't part of the outline."

      With a grin he noticed he was thinking about himself in third person past tense. Perhaps he'd been writing too much lately?

      It's fascinating how much better the story gets in the second rewrite. It's almost like it makes sense now.

      Beginning the story with having your character browse a book shop seems to have a lot of potential, and plenty of pitfalls.

      Doing the long overdue timeline for the backstory of my current WiP, and I discover that my MC went to uni to become a structural engineer.

    Nils Ödlund is a writing and fantasy enthusiast. He's currently chipping away at a series of novellas about the adventures of two shape shifters and a paladin, while at the same time trying to crack the secrets of storytelling. Ödlund lives in Cork, Ireland. When not writing, he enjoys exploring the countryside on foot, and when the weather gets too bad he'll stay home and play games on the computer (or write some more). You can follow Ödlund on his blog (link just above) where he mostly posts pictures of coffee, beer, and the Irish countryside, as well as the occasional update on his writing progress.
