Giant Days is coming



This makes it look a bit glum! I have written down what happens on every page and it's not glum at all. Once it gets going, it's bananas.

John, what is this process of yours with writing what happens on every page?! Have you talked about it before and I'm just late to the party? WILL YOU WRITE A BLOG POST ABOUT THIS? (please?) It is exactly the type of thing I find fascinating no matter how boring the content matter is.

When I'm working on a project of limited length (in this case, 25 pages), when I plot out the story, I write out all the page numbers and next to them, a rough idea of what exactly happens on that page. It means that when I come to write dialogue and rough out the page, I know pretty much exactly what I have to do and I can enjoy myself. It also allows me to spot difficult to resolve plot points and gives me time to think about how to get past them. While some writers benefit from going in blind, I am exactly the opposite.

Gale:

Thank you! I think that outfit is as practical as you can get while still appearing completely impractical.

I can't wait to see what Esther's wardrobe becomes once fully unyoked from the straitjacket of school uniforms!

I can't wait to be further introduced to Susan Ptolemy! From the few sketches we've had, she seems like one of my (numerous) favourite kinds of gals.
