A Note From Author D.B. Jackson
It’s not always clear which will come first in writing a novel—the plot or the characters. What is clear is that, of the two, compelling characters are a must.
From the beginning, I knew I wanted Small Moving Parts to deal with the complexities of life as seen through the eyes of two primary characters in a simpler time and place (rural Texas in 1958). Because the story would deal with a number of universal themes, some of which are relative to age, I knew one would be an old man, the other a young boy.
Next came what they refer to in the screenwriting business as the inciting incident. In this case it was an old man and a boy setting out to commit suicide at the same time.
