This is what an extract of book 1 would look like if it was animated by really rubbish animators then voiced by really wooden actors!
Fun to make though (apart from when I tried to publish it, it crashed and then I had to start all over again...)
In other news I've started a new notebook (I love me a new notebook). I've called this one "Book 2 Rewrite" and I've been scribbling down all the rewrite notes I've secreted in various places including my phone, 2 other notebooks, scraps of paper and in the comments section of YWriter.
I love this stage of writing a novel - working out how to restructure the book, how to make it stronger, how to make the characters more rounded, how to up the tension/emotion, even making myself grin with new ideas for funny bits.
It's just the actual doing it I'm not so keen on.
Oooh I know...I think I'll read some of my 'how to edit' books and then I'll get my blank index cards out, have yellow for character 1, blue for character 2 and pink for characters 3 & 4, then write each scene on the appropriate card, lay them out on the floor to look at the balance of characters and scenes, maybe write down the level of tension on each card to check that it increases as the book progresses and then...um...look at them a bit more...
