“Early on, all our movies suck. Saying that in a softer way fails to convey how bad the ﬁrst versions really are. Pixar ﬁlms are not good at ﬁrst, and our job is to make them so–to go ‘from suck to not-suck’.” ~ Ed Catmull, President of Pixar
I’ve been working through my story plan checklist for my novel, Where the Light Enters. I’ve got lists, notes, index cards, links, and photos that I’m using for inspiration. What seemed like a lot of disparate pieces are now gelling together, and the story barely resembles the original idea. To make this progress, I had to stay open to possibilities, remain aware of new information that could help move the story forward, and begin to share bits and pieces of ideas with others to get their feedback. You can be part of the process and follow Emerson Page, the heroine of Where the Light Enters, on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. She’s loved to talk to you.
