My Approach

I’m going to use a book I ordered recently, Structuring your Novel, by Robert C Meredith & John D Fitzgerald as the framework for writing this novel and comment on my experience with it here.

In the 1st chapter, they advise new novelists to seriously consider writing from experience, citing that 9 out of 10 published first novels are based on actual experience.

It’s never worked for me in the past, but as I haven’t done any planning, I’m going to take short cuts, and base it on a real experience, or at least things I already know about and don’t have to research.

What sparked off my idea is an eviction that recently happened in Amsterdam.
