Your Formula

I was thinking the other day and came to a realization. 

Looking at writing a story head on is fine, for most, I suppose. 

But when you have a project you start with something. Then you add another aspect to that. Say an outline, then you add another dimension and keep adding until the original product is no longer discernible. 

Does that make sense? 

You see a finished product from someone you admire. But what had that product looked like in its infancy? What were its roots as the skeleton was being built as the skin formed on them? 

A formula. 

But the best formulas are those the readers can't see. 


Do you have a formula when you do your thing? Is it something you try to stick to, or do you deviate from the path every now and again? 

Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter @WCMarchese.

Hope to see you there. 


Also, check out my YouTube channel with this link: where you can listen to Gary Buller and my radio show where we talk about horror and other things going on in the industry. Also funny little clips and more to come. 

Check out one of the latest videos where I compare the day job to prescription medication, and how it's a sort of necessary poison...
