Writing is a series of dominos. A series of dominos that branch in a million different directions. My process starts with the fall of the idea. What follows, as I try to create my world and my story, often leads me in unexpected directions. Eventually, (though don’t ask me how) the dominos connect and, hopefully, form art. This is the structure I will try to impose on this blog series about the making of my in-progress YA Fantasy, Castle Valley. There may be some overlap and winding digressions, but I hope you, like me, will be able to step back when all the dominos have fallen and see the pattern.
