Each Novel Teaches New Things Image | Posted on August 3, 2014 by Robyn LaRue Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestTumblrEmailPrintMoreLinkedInPocketRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related
SO TRUE, Robyn! I don’t totally understand my novels until 350+ pages later when I type, “The End.” Great quote.
Oh my gosh, that is SO TRUE. So freaking true…
I think it’s more accurate to say that you only learn how to write the novel you’ve just finished. I don’t understand what I’m writing until I come to the edit.
I’d give a lot for every novel to come out in chronological order, all neat and tidy. Twice I’ve written that way. Every other time it’s been a hot mess of scenes that need to be ordered and put together. I could adjust if the hot mess was the same each time, but . . . every novel is different.
I love writing but my biggest problem is how to wrap up the story ,because it has many characters and it’s not a fictional but true story. In the end I plan to make a full disclosure of all main characters,it will be a total mess . Main characters are related to me and also it contains some government organizations(dangerous). Will you advise me how to keep my identity a secret ? Please I desperately need your advise
