I had intended to post this page yesterday, but it was my birthday. So I’m afraid I was making rather merry. Anyway, I have recovered, so back to work.
When people find out I’m writing a novel, those who are writers, and even those who are thinking of writing, typically ask how I go about it. What approach do I use? What tools? What software? I guess it’s like one cook asking another for their recipe. So I decided to post some of those answers on this blog.
Turns out there’s a lot to tell. So I am going to describe my writing process, for anyone who is interested, in several instalments. Today’s page is about story generation… the process of coming up with a plot where none exists.
