Yes, you read it right.
For the past week, I have been dissecting my plot so that I can see exactly what is going on. I have written out notes for every single scene change in the whole book. It took me ages! Every scene is written on a separate piece of paper so that I can see where all the scene changes are, and I can find things much easier.
I have now put these pieces of paper on my wall. Do you want to see it?
As you can see, there are lots of scenes. Although, I am a first time writer, so I have no idea if I have a lot, about the normal amount, or too little…..any comments?
They are read in columns, So the book starts at the far left, you read down each column, and then move to the top of the next and so on…
Each pink line indicates the start of a new chapter, so you can see I currently have a Prologue, 29 chapters, and an Epilogue. This will probably change once I begin adding in my additional scenes.
I have some changes to make with this edit. I have a character to add, and a few tweaks with the current plot, so doing this means I can easily see how to weave in this new character, and where the tweaks can go.
Once this edit is complete, it will be going to the NWS readers.
And then I can start on notes for book two……
