My Writing Process

Some of you may have seen this before, but I haven’t posted it here yet, so I thought would. This is officially a promo video for Shamanslayer, the latest Gotrek and Felix book, but since I didn’t know how to talk about that without spoilers, I decided to talk about my writing process instead. Have a look!

    Nice work! And the comments at youtube are the usual range if great to wack, but the folks who say you could teach are right.

    Nice summation of your writing process Nathan. Its quite different, working a tie in, and I’ve never seen it explained. Very cool.

    Great video. You have a very inspiring way of working. When/if I ever get around to write something myself, I will certainly be referring to your technique.
    I am 30 pages short of having read Shamanslayer. I am quite excited to see how it ends. After that a review for The David Gemmell Legend Awards awaits. It is looking good so far. :)

    Enjoyed this, thanks.

    (I did screenwriting [unprofessional] for a while and yes, even when doing prose (even prose shorts) I tend towards three acts and use other screenwriting tools and methods. Very good background for plotting, gives a good skeleton to build on.)
