This is the draft of my next novel

This is the scene/event that my subconscious created for me that caught my imagination, and made me believe it could be spun out into a whole book, because it was so good. SO good!

This is the ending I thought my agent/publisher would probably want me to finish it with. I don't actually like it that much.

This is something that happened in my actual life that is funny/poignant/unbelievable but I think will add gravitas and depth to the book.

This is the point when i start grasping at formula to pad out the bits between "that scene" that started it all and the ending I think they'll want. Still don't like it. 

This is when a mis-heard phrase rings bells in my unconscious and I get a great idea for the title. The TITLE!

This is the bit where I realise how it's all going to fit together. Then this is where I have doubts about pretty much everything.

And this, This, THIS is the real ending. The one that works.

Now all I have to do is write it…

I do all sorts of things. Mostly badly. Mostly better than others. I tell stories. Occasionally, I lie.
