For some of my books, I draw a VERY rough map of the setting. (I'm terrible at drawing.)
It is a valuable tool to help me maneuver my characters throughout the story.
I drew one for my upcoming novel, On the Road to Mr. Mineo's.
I never dreamed I would show it to anyone.
Today my editor asked me if I could sketch a little map for the jacket artist (Greg Call), who was working on a map for the book jacket. (She added that it didn't need to help me get into Pratt. Good thing...)
So, I sent the one I used. Pretty rough....but, hey, it helped!
