- which means today I have written a lot of notes.
This is good. I've been 'fleshing' today, getting closer to working out what's going on and why and when and to whom and with what and where.
Something that's suprised me about this process is the scope - in terms of time - my idea covers. It's not going back to Ancient Egypt or anythin, but it's gone back several decades further than I imagined in the beginning.
The story spans 40-50 years, but isn't told chronologically, so I'm playing around with the order that will best tell it.
Wordcount-wise, I'm not sure. I probably have 3 thousand words of notes in longhand as well as bits I've written in and around the story on my laptop.
Now, I'm going to go and run somewhere so as to feed that bit of my brain as well.
