Have you ever been reading along and wished you could see exactly how a house or plot of land looked that the character lives in. Well, today is your lucky day.
In going through the edits for Writing Home, my editor couldn't picture exactly how everything looked the way I had described it. To make both our lives easier, I sketched out a rough (seriously, super rough with no measuring whatsoever) floor plan of the land Jordan's family lives on (see above) as well as his cabin (see below).
Are you also curious about Chris's apartment? This link shows several apartments that are basically what I was thinking hers looked like-- especially 1A A. You walk in through the kitchen with the living room just beyond and her bedroom off of that. Very simple, but all she needed.
Does this help you picture things better? I love when books include maps and plans like this because it does help me see things the way the author sees them in her head. What do you think? Was this how you pictured Jordan and Chris's homes?
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
