The Snowflake Method for Writing a Novel is something that’s fascinated me for a while. I’ve a few reservations as to it’s method, namely that I’m not really sure that a story can knit well if it’s made up of component parts that have grown semi-independently of each other. Despite that though, I’m going to give it a try as I’ve had an idea for a series of novels for a while. I’ll snowflake Book One, just to see what happens.
Today is Day One. Book One.
Working title: Aldwych Street
One sentence summary:
“Aging detective solves seemingly impossible crimes that he commits himself.”
The crimes are solved, but who really committed them? Chief Inspector Turman is called on to investigate the curious death of Sarah Furbush, London socialite. As her erratic lifestyle unwinds a trail of loves and deceptions, three more deaths are uncovered leading to a climactic fatal ending. Is this another case closed for Turman, or more blood on his hands?”
Update: I’ve joined the National Novel Writing Month competition, so writing will start in earnest 1st November!
