#33 Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica End of Act 1 in place


So the story is roughly divided into four parts or eight parts, the technically of it doesn't matter so much. And some some people do three. Whatever works! I roughly use Alexandra Sokoloff's method.  
http://www.screenwritingtricks.com/2010/02/three-act-eight-sequence-structure.html  I do it in a very loose way and it really depends on if the story works that way. Not all stories will work.  NEVER FORCE A STORY INTO A STRUCTURE. The structure is to help the story not the other way around.

This is way I'm considering whether I'm doing a two part Act 1 or a one part Art 1. Complicated? Not really, I just need to figure out a few bits and then roll with it.


Recap of Part One.

So Angelica is having problems at home. Her friends persuade her to go partying to forget all her problem. There she meets a hot super-sexy thug, and they have a steamy lust-filled one-night stand. In the morning Angelica and the thug part ways. Angelica catches up with her girls about the HOT NIGHT. Then on Sunday she goes to church and another family drama follows.

So I'm going to be focusing on tidying that up this week.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
