Plotting Is Like Conducting

As I wrapped up an extensive (36 page) plan for the rewrite today, checking it over, seeing that the subplots poked up at the right moments, that I’d not neglected any of the main characters at any point, I felt as if I were the conductor and the characters my orchestra. With my baton I called out Queen Philippa, signalling time for the snide remark, then Lady Joan for the retort….

How satisfying the rehearsals have been. Now for the performance.
