A blog about writing and all things story…
In my rewrite of Far From The Moon, I’m working on crystallizing my theme and staying focused on what matters.
Reading local author, Larry Brook’ s instructive blog has been helpful. And I always like to share what’s helpful in this difficult journey of novel writing.
Larry makes a statement about Context and Concept that resonates with me because I’m editing out some story lines that don’t echo my theme or concept.
It’s a simple rule to remember as I rewrite – maybe it’ll help you as well;
“Everything in Part 2, for all the characters, is in context to responding to that critical Plot Point One milestone. And it’s important to acknowledge why, because it’s precisely what happens when we are writing a story and do not have all four of the requisite story elements – concept, character, theme and structure – at the forefront of our thinking. Because nothing really works until all four are swimming in the same lane.” To read Larry’s full article go to LarryBrooks/StoryFix
