Re-visioning a "novel concept" : beyond vision and revision to advanced editing strategies

Bell, Anita (2009) Re-visioning a "novel concept" : beyond vision and revision to advanced editing strategies. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a work of creative practice-led research comprising two components. The first component is a speculative thriller novel, entitled Diamond Eyes. (Contracted for publication in 2009 by Harper Collins: Voyager as the first in a trilogy, under the name AA Bell.) The second component is an exegesis exploring the notion of re-visioning a novel. Re-visioning, not to be confused with revision, refers to advance editing strategies required when the original vision of a novel changes during development.
