There are countless writing tools available with more being added daily. However, when plotting out Eleven Little Deaths, there was one resource I used daily – a Rand McNally road atlas of the United States. Instead of using an outline or note cards, the atlas served literally as my road map for the protagonist, Jacob Will.
I’ve been to many of the places portrayed in the book and now (oh, the horror!) must visit the others, just to close the circle on this. Over the course of future posts, I’ll write a bit about each place to provide more of a flavor of what Jacob has experienced. I’m hoping not to offend any Chambers of Commerce while doing so. Maybe an invite to each location, a promise of the key to each city, and luxe lodging might favorably affect such a description.
