Organizing the chapters

Posted on 07/16/2012 02:29:31 PM

So begins one of my favorite aspects ofwriting a novel; organizing the chapters. This is when I take each separatecharacter and their plotline and read it all in one string instead of beingspaced out in the book. This allows me to flush out any inconsistencies andmake sure the story stays true and along ...
