Writing Fiction for Young Readers : Developing character through pre-writing

My second vid in the series is live on my Writing Col channel. This is fairly short, detailing the first small steps and how the basic idea for Camp Tombstone came about, and why pre-writing is a good alternative to drawing up character profiles. This isn't so much of a how-to guide, more of a personal analysis of how I work. As the channel develops, I do plan to try other approaches and writing methods, just for fun really, but also because there is no one "right" way to plan and write a book.
