Writing the Rulebook

writing the rulebookI’ve written a piece for The Doctor Who Companion about writing the Rulebook. I go through the process and point out where it differs for Big Finish. The piece is here: HOW I WROTE SHORT TRIPS: RULEBOOK FOR BIG FINISH.

I’d be interested in feedback from fellow writers as to how this differs (if at all) from their own experience. I may follow this article up with a piece on the recording day; I’ll let you know.

In particular

These notes are about being commissioned so outlining is the vital step (or so it has been in my experience). There is a unique step as Doctor Who is a BBC product, but apart from that I believe the process is of interest. I look forward to any comments.
