    1. I still want to do Edmund, but ARA is stressing me at the moment. HoW DO YOU STRUCTURE A NOVEL WITH FOUR MCS AND FLASHBACKS BETWEEN PAST AND PRESENT?!??

    2. Hm. I don't know? You could always do chapter headings with the POV character's name and a date. Or you could each give them their own book and each book starts and ends with the same timeline? I HAVE NO IDEA, but it sounds like a great puzzle to solve.

    3. Uh-oh, definitely not a book each! XD One thing I'm really excited about is that this is a standalone. I think by the time I'm done with the TCATT trilogy I'll be series-ed out! Also I want it to be a lot about the siblings' interactions/relationships with each other. So for at least some of it they'll need to all be at home together, ie in the holidays. But then we also see them off at school/uni? But maybe the school/uni termtime stuff is flashbacks, and the summer holiday is in the present. Ugh. It's Future Emily's problem, anyway!

    4. Oh, okay. It sounds better and better every time I hear you talk about it! I do see what you mean about juggling everything though. You'll figure it out!
