Author's Advice - fanfic?
« on: June 30, 2021, 01:13:25 PM »
An author I follow sends out a newsletter. Not often but that is okay.

She does confessions about her books, the ones that give her a hard time and has revisions.

Anyway in today's letter she admits she is terrible at plotting. Which causes her revisions and she actually had to re-write two of her books. 

The nugget of advice in the letter I think is good to share.

Someone once said that writing is rewriting, and let me tell you, it’s more than true in my case. - Larissa Ione

She plots loosely now because when you have a character who wants to do something that the author wasn't expecting, let the idea run. Even tragic characters can have compassion.
