Inside Frankenstein

Frankenstein's_monster_(Boris_Karloff) 2While we’re jumping into NaNoWriMo this month, it might be interesting to see what was going on in the minds of some famous authors of days gone by. This site is an ongoing project looking at the notebooks of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. The site compares handwritten notebook pages (not surprising since they predate the typewriter) alongside typed pages for easy reading. They offer a fascinating glimpse into Shelley’s creative process. Interesting reading. (And yes, I know the image here is not really representative of the novel, but it is, in its own way, an iconic image of Frankenstein’s monster, so there.)
