Following on from Yoxani’s post from last week, I too am in the midst of a new novel. I’m in the planning stages of my second book in my three part series. I’m not committing words to paper yet, I’m busy brainstorming with some lovely people about how this story might look. I’m also reading books on plotting as I can’t plot a novel yet. My brain doesn’t understand it. So I’ve started reading Story Genius by Lisa Cron. I’m not very far into it yet, but so far I’ve learned that stories are integral to the human psyche. We connect with stories, but are never taught what a story really is or what makes us love them so much. So this is what I’m learning about right now. I’m excited to keep reading this book and apply it to my brainstorming for the next novel.
