Michael A. Black

Excellently written, Peggy. I love the term "mapper." You've described exactly what I do in my writing.

Margaret Lucke

You and I seem to be kindred spirits when it comes to writing, Michael.

Ellen Kirschman

I have a line in my forthcoming novel The Fifth Reflection in which my protagonist says "The map is not the territory." In this instance she means the way something appears is not the same as the way it exists in reality. Thanks for an informative piece. I always learn something from you.

Margaret Lucke

I like that variation on the theme, Ellen. Thank you for sharing it, and thank you for the kind words.


Mapper! I like that too! I generally start with a synopsis, but quickly diverge. For me too, the (writing) journey is (more than) half the fun!
