Plotting An Unauthorised Fan Treatise

After reading the full novel, you’re probably getting an idea of how hard An Unauthorised Fan Treatise was to write. There are multiple timelines and several layers of perception – what’s really going on; what Gottie thinks is going on; and what she’s telling the reader is going on as an unreliable narrator.





I wanted to share some of the techniques of how I made it all fit together. The pictures in

“Love take so much energy, and it just leads to pain. I think it's probably best for people to be self-sufficient. If I was strong enough to be independent, then I wouldn't be so desperately lonely. I'm sure of it,”
Lauren James, The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

“I just want someone who holds on. Someone who won't ever let me go, whatever tries to tear us apart. Is that too much to ask?”
Lauren James, The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

“I’ve got the half-real fear that creeps up on you in the middle of the night, making you think that there is a monster in your room.”
Lauren James, The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“I love you. In every life, I love you. I love you so much.”
Lauren James, The Next Together

“I can remember thinking I’d been turned inside out. Kind of like the first time I saw you.”
Lauren James, The Last Beginning

“All I'm doing is carrying you around, and making a fool of myself. I’m useless. I’m not helping anyone.’’

‘’Clove Sutcliffe, you are doing things no human has ever done before. You are groundbreaking. You are unique. Do not cease to function due to inappropriate emotional weakness.”
Lauren James, The Last Beginning

“I really am sorry."
Clove could feel Ella’s heartbeat thumping against the skin. It sent shivers through her. Her breath came out too sharp. She wanted to cradle Ella’s cheek, to push her fingers into her hair. “I didn’t want to have to regret becoming emotionally invested in you,” she said in a whisper.”
Lauren James, The Last Beginning
