Finally, after months of planning, I have finished the outlining for my novel and I’m ready to start writing!
For the past week I’ve been plotting. First, I compiled my plot notes and created a list of scenes that I thought might go into the book. Some were important scenes while others were completely random.
Then, I wrote every scene on an index card and proceeded to organize them into a coherent order.
I like using the index card method because it’s easy to rearrange scenes and get a bird’s eye view of the storyline. I also like being able to physically move them, rather than just cutting and pasting on the computer.
Now I’ve just printed out all of my notes and outline. All I need to do now is just start! 🙂
I’m so excited!
