It’s August, and I’m scrambling to rewrite my novel, After the Fury. Using a combination of Snowflaking (AdvancedFictionWriting.com) and my favorite writing software (WriteWayPro), I’m re-examining the structure, logic, cause and effect chains and timelines to make sure everything makes sense. I have two agent appointments at the Hampton Roads Writers Conference in September, and I plan (ha ha) to have it completely re-written and highly polished by then. I have learned that I will outline my next novel, at least to some degree. All this backtracking is killing me!
