Connecting the Dots

with one comment

I’m a fairly visual person. What does that mean for me writing long-fiction? For one, it means keeping flip-chart and markers stocked up on the door to my office. It also means a lot of bubble maps. Every chapter gets its own bubble map. The entire arc of the plot gets a bubble map. Then, as I lay out all the pieces of the puzzle, sometimes I need a map to see how they all stick together. Yesterday, somewhere over the midwest at 30,000 feet, I did just that with all the data-points for my forthcoming novel set in Stratford, CT. Most of my chapter bubble-maps follow the plot: beginning-middle-end. This was more of a seeing how each data point relates to all the other data points; not so much plot as connection. Here’s a quick window into what that looks like:

This factory job,
day in, day out… is barely
keeping us alive.

Lifeless like the thread
and swatches… until my hands work
meaning into them.

The rope that binds me
Is nothing more than my fears…
So, I keep a knife.

Morning elixir,
Fuels nighttime imaginings…
Delaying sunrise.

New contemplation,
Something coming from nothing;
Hoping for a bloom.
