Palouse Writing Project - Introduction
Writing Project is intended to look at the nuts and bolts of writing a novel,
Palouse, about the coming of age of and the coming of maturity to a young
prodigy musician and the love that grows between him and a young musician. The project likely will extend over the next
follow the project will be able to see and can comment on the decisions that
need to be made; will see portions of the novel as it is written and possibly
changed from the initial story outline; will see some of the
devices—spreadsheets and the like—to keep characters straight; will see the
research that serves as the baseline of the story, and will see the beta
version of the completed novel.
will not be written in the order of the story outline/summary. It will be written, likely, in somewhat
random order as ideas and the muses dictate.
This means that there will not be a nearly complete novel until late in
the process, and it means, as a consequence, that it cannot be posted in
regular chapters until it is almost finished.
successful this project is will depend on those who post responses to the
various Palouse postings.
