I should have linked to this the other day, when I first saw it, but here’s a fun guest post by Emma Jane Holloway, over at Fantasy Book Cafe.
This post will not only make you smile, it offers a really clever idea for sorting out the big-picture action scenes in your novel. I actually did have to do a flowchart once, to get everyone where they were supposed to be at the right time, but I have never used macaroni to sort out troop movements. I may totally steal this idea!
Also, fans of fantasy related to Sherlock Holmes may want to check out Holloway’s series. I am not actually a Sherlock Holmes fan, but these do look like fun. Plus, there are links so you can read excerpts — such a valuable thing when you’re not sure about a new-to-you author.
