Egads! Next novel I'm going to write a finely detailed plotline first! This will be about the third time I'm going over House of Cuts 320 pages again, charting all the scenes and their connections, linking to the overall story arc. Using filetab dividers for each chapter and its critiques, sorted into a file box.
Getting 20 pages of HofC ready to take to Moke Hill novel workshop soon--a useful two-day event for a small group in which we read out loud our 20 pages to about eight people and get their critiques, one of them being Antoinette May http://www.antoinettemay.com/ and the other Lucy Sanna http://www.lucysanna.com/
Got rich, helpful feedback from this process last Oct. and want to give it another go.
write hard, die free!
