Today I discuss the experience of writing the action climax to the book, and how I was able to solve some big problems by finding the answers within the book-to-date, including some unexpected twists. I also talk about how the Heinlein Juveniles have a bifurcated story structure in the final third of the book, why that happens, and how I accidentally emulated this feature with Hadrian’s Flight.
I update you on my NaNoWrimo
“Do any other Nanocast listeners podcast fiction?”
“How do I find experts, especially for cultural perspectives and details?”
“How do you build hype for a novel pre-publication?”
“How do you find cover art resources and learn what you need to in order to get your covers done right?”
How do I bring color and spice to my historical world without name-dropping all over the place?
I’m back just in time for November, the very month in which we started this whole crazy adventure last year. Today I talk about what kept me away, what’s going to be happening here now that I’m back, and some crazy bumps in my own creative life that have bumped my schedule around so that I’m doing a novel-in-a-month this very month! Join me on this new odyssey and bring your friends–it’s gonna be a fun ride!
