How are your structures holding up?
Do they support and lift your story to a new level or will they crumble under scrutiny? Are there termites eating away at the foundation? Do all the elements of the story contribute to the structure or do they detract from it? These are the questions I've been asking myself lately as I've been cutting my story back to a reasonable length for YA.
Do you follow the Traditional Form as in the Freytag's Pyramid?
Does the structure highlight what's important or hide it?
Can you view it from above and below without glaring problems waving at you?
Mine is still in construction or should I say deconstruction/reconstruction right now and these are the questions I'm asking myself. They are really helping me.
FYI--Since the last few Mondays, comparing writing to photography/photographs, have been so popular, I'm going to make it my regular Monday feature. Today's images: 1 & 2--The Eiffel Tower and 3--The Pyramid at the Louvre.
