What is meant by authorship? I keep seeing the word bandied around and needed to find out exactly in what context it is used. I found this explanation, and I’m going to share it with you.
AUTHORSHIP -FIRST OUTLINE
Although this is the first outline it won’t necessarily end up in the book. Often, I get an idea and then from that first idea another idea intervenes and the story goes off in another direction, which I find fascinating. So, this time, because I’m using this new writing software I can take a ‘snapshot’ of anything I’ve written before changing or editing. Meaning I’ll be able to compare the first ideas to what I end up with.
In my REVENGE series, I have so far only had serial killers wreaking havoc on the small market town of Frodsham. But, this time I think, there’ll only be one murder, but the plot will also include blackmail and a cold case of kidnap and a missing child. All investigated by the usual team led by DI Helen Cooke. There’s a new Detective Constable to replace the DC murdered in book two, and I’m planning a lot of trouble with her for Helen! The rest of the team will stay the same – so far – but anything can happen between the pages. I might juggle their personal lives around a bit too – have a bit of lurrv and a lot of angst. (I’m rubbing my hands with glee at this point – oh the power!)
Here are the first two chapters still in draft form – about 3.500 which isn’t a lot – yet, but once I’ve completed 5.000 words I usually know the story-line and I’m able to continue and complete the book.
My authorship on book three has some way to go yet with quite a few twists, turns and changes. I still need a title and think about a cover and I also need to decide how long the story will be. I’ve got a lot to do, so, I need to crack on.
