Novel Writing . . .continuing
I've written a quite large section of my novel over the last couple of days. The biggest part of writing a novel is plotting. Once you have some sort of structure, writing is relatively easy. It's a bit like scaffolding for a building, it has to be in place before the brickies can go in and build the walls, put in the windows, doors and roof etc etc. If I know where the plot is going, as I say, the writing is staightforward. 'Story arc' as it's often referred to. As there are several plots that don't seem related, but do have connections, that makes it all the more complicated. I must say I'm really pleased with how it's going.
