Note: inventing my chapters, when is best.

21 10 2010

Re my new book project.  I came up with the second chapter whilst lying in bed.  I Wonder if I can do this with the characters as well or perhaps I should write them down, develop their characters on paper first?

One things for sure though, it will be interesting lying in bed coming up with the next chapters at night. In fact that could easily help me fall asleep. Sort of like a reverse morning pages*.  I am inspiring myself before I go asleep. The next chapter could be born before I wake. I need not let the next days writing be a chore of invention because I have already invented it. I like this idea. It worked last night let’s see if it works in the future. Will test.

*’morning pages’ – a concept written about recently in Julia Cameron’s book ‘The Artists Way’ (not solely I might add as Dorothea Brande wrote on it in the 1930’s).
