The Journey of a Novel

This is a diagram showing the process each of my major novels go through – from spark, to birth, to crisis/self-doubt, to calm, to completion. What will never change is that dreadful moment of crisis and self-doubt. My mind goes through mental torture at that stage. But then I push through that and get to work again.

Who knows? Maybe that crisis is a necessary part in the whole creation process.
