The more I work on my first novel, the more I am realising the importance of planning! As much as we would like to think that every novel we have ever loved just sprang into the world fully formed, this just isn’t the case.
In this section, you will find articles designed to get you thinking about your own novel-in-the-making. There will also be insights into my own planning process and how this has helped to shape (and at times re-shape) the novel I am currently working on.
What you’ll find here:
- Outlining A Novel
- The Pre-Book Timeline
- Prologue or Con[logue]
- Narrative Voices: Person and Tense
- Narrative Voices: Knowledge and Character
- World Building: Physical
- World Building: Human
- World Building: Extraordinary
As ever, I am keen to know your own insights and experiences of writing in all its forms and stages. Please do get in touch or write a Guest Post that can be featured on this site to share your thoughts.
