Here’s a quick snapshot of the process behind Flash Pulp – this is really how almost every episode begins.
Well, I suppose this is actually step two; step one usually looks like a hastily jotted explanatory sentence, either elsewhere in the notebook, or in my phone.
Events in the proposed story are distributed over the three sections on the left, with random items I need to retain on the right. This is the second run-down I’ve begun for a three-part Ruby Departed tale, which will hopefully be posted the week after next; the first attempt exploded into a thousand weeping paper cuts at the narrative’s climax.
Once I’ve managed to get the three overarching sections pat, I’ll create an identical structure for the trio of acts in each division.
