The Road So Far

I've been working on the outline for a few weeks now and this is where I am so far.

Outline

Yeah. I have a long way to go.

I know the beginning of the book, and have an idea how it will all tie up. It’s the middle that is missing a little meat.

This photo shows a screenshot of my storyboard, which I've set up in LSBXE. I decided to forgo the photos and focus on point-form listing for each scene.

As you can see, it doesn't seem like enough scenes to fill a novel, right? That’s because the more I plot, the more questions or problems come up that I need to find solutions for.

If I can solve everything on my growing list of roadblocks, I may be able to get away with not having to plot the middle. It will write itself.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself 🙂

    Looks like a great start though! 🙂 Sometimes I let the questions get answered through writing, but it can be scary to let it go like that.

    It’s looking good though. Glad to see another plotter — although your outlines look way more fancy and organised than mine!

    Found you via the Coffin Hop — can’t wait for that to kick off! 🙂

      I am a card-carrying, sometimes obsessive outliner – and proud of it! 🙂 Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the Coffin Hop!
