I can only think and plot in colour – otherwise it doesn’t makes sense to me, so here is a picture of my latest ‘workings out’ for what was my novel Zofantica but, has now become Ba.


Well, part way through my plotting it out, I realised that Zofantica cannot happen unless a whole other load of things happen first, and therefore, Zofantica has to be pushed back to book 3 of the series instead of book 2.

So, now I am officially writing Ba; book 2 of Guardians of the Freen-Earth Alliance.

Incidentally, I still haven’t actually written any more of it – just lots of colourful plot diagrams.

I am a hopeless procrastinator.


Having already written the first seven chapters of this follow-up to FREEN, I decided to plot each chapter and state a clear purpose, so that I can clearly see what I am revealing to my readers each time.

I found a hard-back, A4 notebook and am starting chapter 1 from the rear and working forwards so that the most recent chapter is closest to the front of the book. I have a page for each chapter on the left and a blank page on the right for post-it notes and sketches. It makes sense to me to do it like this, but then I always read magazines from the rear to the front – no idea why.
