The novel has been put to one side for the moment. I have prepping to do for the reading next week. I have finally picked a story but more on that in the next blog post.
I seem to have been wrong after initially thinking chapter four and five were going to be the hardest to write. Chapter four was the funniest to write for a long time. Chapter five is fitting together with the rest of the story better than the first post-it notes. I don't think planning should be strict. As markers and reminders, yes but not regimented.
