Monday Goals

My thoughts are pretty scattered right now.
I'm revising my way through Chapter 8 and waiting on crits for Chapters 2 and 3.
I'm making a list for layering when this revision is complete...

Did you know London was in a floodplain? No? Me either. I learned that this week...and must make a few minor adjustments because of it. couple of key scenes at the beginning... :P

Speaking of layering, does anyone else do this?
This ms took me by surprise from its creation and I've found myself doing draft upon draft of layering. A few times, the changes have been large enough to not finish one draft, but to return to the beginning to begin the new layer from there. I'm trying to decide if this is at all efficient. Perhaps the fact that I'm not on a deadline is key. I just keep working to make the story fuller, better.

How about you? Do you layer?

  1. Hmm... I don't know if I've ever done layering, but as I write my first draft I will sometimes have something happen later in the novel that I will then make a note to myself to later go back and set-up earlier in the novel.

    Sometimes though I think the best method is just whatever works for you!
