Re: Was Sinderian switched with Winloki?
That's really useful, thanks a lot. I've never been big on sequential, organised notes, but I've fallen foul a few times through not making any. Everything has been vivid in my head and I haven't seen the need ... until a year or two later when writing a subsequent book and then I have to sift back through my previous work to find details that I know I must keep consistent.
I know that many writers (particularly female writers) sometimes find it easier to write sections of stories that are vivid to them there and then, regardless of where they fit into the overall story. Then they fit the pieces together and fill in the gaps. Being of a logical, male, one thing must follow another type, I find that I have to draft my stories in chronological order. If I get stuck, I cannot dot forwards and backwards writing other parts of the story whilst I work out the problems. I just have to sweat over the problem until I solve it. Sometimes I feel like I'm working at a distinct disadvantage. I do like the idea of a folder of notes that I can add to, though. I think I'll start doing that.
