Novel Puzzle – Week 3

June 18, 2014 § Leave a comment

Now through week 3 of revision, I can admit, for the sake of accomplishment, I’ve been typing up easy chapter revisions, leaving the not-sure-yets for a bit later. But what I’m discovering is the more I go on ahead, the more the pieces that don’t quite fit, keep showing up. Everywhere.

putting it all together is like working a puzzle - but you get to make all the pieces

putting a novel all together is like working a puzzle – while you make the pieces

My challenge at the moment is to remove pieces I really like, that don’t fit too well anymore. Then to make new pieces, that do. I get afraid the whole thing’s going to fall apart – the plot is driven by phantom wheels or something.

Office supplies to the rescue. Everything’s in writing, hard copies as well as disk, so taking this apart just shouldn’t be a problem. I shall PIERRsevere. Heather Sellers (in her novel-writing-how-to book, Page After Page) suggests making lists of possibilities when stuck, our frontal lobe really likes this sort of thing (mine especially). So I’m off to make lists now. Week 4 will be fun. I have a Writer’s Faith – and tags!

more and more chapters to fix...

150 pages of the Novel after Week 3 of revision = more and more chapters to fix…

TIP: Use all the colors.      xo Pierr
