WRITERS ON WRITING #52: Sarah Waters

I write a synopsis for myself really, to get my ideas organised –– but I might never refer to it again.  I usually start at the beginning of a book and just work my way slowly through it, several chapters at a time, annotate them, then rewrite them and print them out again –– I might do that three or four times per section.  It's quite a laborious way to do it –– going over and over sections that will probably change later on, when I come to rewrite the book as a whole.  I sometimes wish I could work in a different way –– be a bit looser about it.
