The Evolution of a Novel

02/23/2010 at 6:57 pm (Welcome)

Welcome to my first posting at WordPress.

This blog is inspired by April Davila’s blog and Janet Fitch’s blog, in that it both details my creative process during the creation of a novel – “The Bear Who Broke The World” – and displays short fiction pieces based on Janet’s prompts.  All of the prompts will be used to develop two-page exercises that revolve around the characters and the world of my novel.  The setting is Berkeley, California, so most if not all of the writings will occur in this specific place.  They will focus on different times in the city’s history, employ various points of view, engage numerous characters – both main and peripheral – and will hopefully serve as both entertaining reads for you and creative discoveries that will feed directly into the novel.

So, thanks for taking this journey with me.  It may not always be smooth or follow the most direct route, but hopefully it will be a trip ultimately worth taking.

– Justin
