Anatomy of a novel

What does a novel on an author’s laptop look like? A lot of readers probably picture a single MS Word file with the title of the novel for its name. But here’s some screenshots from my computer showing you the contents of folders I set up specifically for my latest book, Evelyn dear Fender. Its working title was Entwined. As it turned out, however, there were close to two dozen books on Amazon with the title, Entwined, and most of them looked something like:

1411905864

So… anyway…

I’m guessing that more effort goes into the building and maintaining such a physique than what went into the writing of War and Peace. Fender Spigot’s (the lover-boy in Evelyn dear Fender) body may not be cover material, but his poetic eloquence will charm the pants off any warm blooded female creature.

Look at me, going on about hand size… way off topic. Reset. I have no idea how this compares to other author’s novel projects, but here is the anatomy of one of mine. :)(:

  1. I love All the Butterfies in the World. A true piece of art. I have to admit I didn’t see the ending coming until just before the end. Being unable to forecast an ending rarely happens, so when it does, I am truly impressed. The characters and the storyline were well developed, so it was a pleasure to read. Btw, I like that, in the end, Liz was actually visiting an ancestor when she visited Anne McKinnon.
