Two years and many books are between Book One and Book Two. You pick up the second book’s manuscript to edit it — and you freeze. Who was that minor character, again? What were we doing? When did Main Character get that scar?
That’s one scenario where a good concordance can save you time, headaches and re-reading. A good concordance is an asset while editing or writing any complex story or multi-volume work. It’s easy, quick, and effective to make an organized and concise character and plot concordance for yourself or your clients and thus keep everything in line for the next book, scene or volume. In this webinar, we’ll look at what a concordance is, how to use it, how to add a simplified concordance to any style sheet and how to notate necessary details in an effective manner that lets you easily pick up where you left off.
