I have on occasion been surprised by how some of my stories turned - as if on it's own. Generally it's because of the characters. They seem to temper what 'must' happen to make a story work if they are in it.

I don't really tend to theme in my work. Themes are there surely but I don't contrive a story to 'sell' a theme.

I do want to know what happens next. (Secretly, I want a WIP of my own that'll give me a reason to do research in Scotland.) The SNOWFLAKE method is intriguing. Tell us how it progresses.

The Common Place Book

“Commonplacing,” as it was called, involved transcribing interesting or inspirational passages from one’s reading, assembling a personalized encyclopedia of quotations. In the words of one advocate, maintaining the books enabled one to “lay up a fund of knowledge, from which we may at all times select what is useful in the several pursuits of life.” (from Wikiquotes)

Writers, explore an aspect of character development.
My latest blog post explores character creation through the use of "archetypes" and "universals", with a nod to Chaucer.
