It’s getting a bit “drafty” in here…


My novel Temporal Sentence, an account of a woman with early onset dementia has gone through many forms since its original inspiration:

  1. Creative non-fiction tale of family member’s experience told through four voices
  2. Fictional version A told in two voices
  3. Fictional version B told in four voices
  4. Fictional version C losing a character and plot point, told in third person
  5. Fictional version D villain turning into goody, dementia replacing character, taking out attempted murder plot.
  6. Facebook version—the runt of the litter—bullied out of existence.

Final Version?

One thought on “It’s getting a bit “drafty” in here…

  1. The answer obviously is to write a version which includes parts of all the versions, thereby having something for everyone. I’m being facetious, of course, but I do empathise. If only there were just one way to write a book…. Sometimes I’d like to be told what to do – writing wise, anyway.
