I'm getting ready to start the actual writing process of my next novel. There's still some stuff to research, but I'll do that as I go along.
Besides the fact that it's set in World War II, however, I haven't really shared any of the story's details with anyone. That is a deliberate move on my part. This time 'round, I'm determined to keep my story "close to the vest" as the saying goes. Why? Because sometimes I feel that I ruin the bond I have with my characters and the story itself by discussing it with others.
Or maybe I'm just weird. (This is entirely possible).
Do you keep your story "close to the vest" or do you spill the details with anyone who will listen?
