I have listened to the first season of this amazing series of podcasts: http://www.writingexcuses.com/, by one of my favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson.
These podcasts are a veritable goldmine. I have learned a lot from just that first season, and it mostly shows me that I have a very long way to go. It doesn’t matter. Writing is a process and I can learn as I go.
This evening I went back to the beginning, looking back on the Nexus books as a whole, and started to create a more structured outline, paying attention to area’s that need a lot more attention. I try to find the structures in the story (3-act, a bit of romance) and see if I can straighten out the straying parts.
Already I have a better feel for the global arcs and the relationship between Cyrilla, Wessel and Dariën.
