I’m always working on new projects, whether it’s a new novel or two, short stories, or maybe even a flash fiction piece. Here you can keep up to date with what I’m working on. I’ll try to give you a flavour of the project and what stage I’m currently at.
All author’s writing processes can vary but for me, I generally use three main stages.
Stage 1 – Drafting The first draft can take 3-6 months depending upon the size of the novel and is where the ideas come together.
Stage 2 – Editing. I make several edits, expanding the plot and getting into the depth of the characters, or deleting irrelevant parts of the story. Here’s where any major changes take place.
Stage 3 – Final edit. I have a final readthrough, check the flow of the story, plotlines, and make any minor changes. Once done, my novel should be in a good place and ready to read.
