Road to Writing - Outline

Hi All,

The journey continues in preparing a story.  We've done some work so far in what our characters should look like, where the location of our story will take place and what some of the buildings may look like.

Now it's time to outline or plan some of the things we'd like to happen in our story.  Think about your plot, think about sub-plots and specific scenes or conversations you'd like characters to have.

There is no right or wrong way to organize your story.  You can use folders for each of the items you have or you can enter it onto one sheet.  I like to use a word document to lay things out. I like to break the document into sections: Plot, Secondary Story Lines, Specific Scenes and Other.

I don't always write up this document. I sometimes will use colored sheets of paper and cut them with ideas or write what I want to do with my story in a journal book.  My advice is to use a technical that works best for you. 

That's the key to writing your story, using the tools you have and using them the best way possible to create your story.

Today I'm leaving you with a video by Sirenia - The Path to Decay.  Enjoy!

Rock on!
