Writing Excuses 7.28: Project in Depth: Glamour in Glass

Writing Excuses 7.28: Project in Depth: Glamour in Glass

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2012/07/08/writing-excuses-7-28-project-in-depth-glamour-in-glass/

Key questions: Glamour in Glass changed tone? Did looking at the rest of the world with glamour change the way you looked at the magic? How did you build the plot? Do we get to Waterloo? Is history different? Naming, and the Count? How did they go in to dinner? How did you research this? How do you avoid putting too much research in? Did you outline? What kind of outline? Was this the book with the Hollywood Formula?

[Brandon] All right. Well. Writing prompt. Dan!
[Dan] Writing prompt.
[Brandon] Everyone's head turned towards you, so we're going to make you do it.
[Dan] Okay. Well, I want to take the cool idea that Mary didn't use, and have Queen Victoria's older sister not die and become the Queen and write about how that changes England.
[Brandon] Okay. Nice work.
[Mary] Except it wasn't actually her older sister, it was her cousin, but okay.
[Dan] Oh. Her cousin. The other person.
[Brandon] She has an older sister, and... No.
[Mary] Yeah. Do that one, because I want to write the Queen Charlotte one.
[Brandon] This has been Writing Excuses. You're out of excuses. Now go write.
