Plotboarding


I've been using Diana Peterfreund's plotboarding technique to map out what I have/ don't have in the YA UF. I'm up to chapter 11 so far, but there are a couple of chapters where I only have one plot point going forward and I'm not sure that's right so we'll have to see how it goes (although I'm doing for chapters rather than scenes so maybe that's part of it?) I'll do the whole book, stand back and see what's there/ missing. I already have a couple of notes for amendments to the story just from what I've done so far so that's all to the good.

If you want to check out Diana's plot boarding technique and give it a go check out the plotboards link in the sidebar on her blog - she also did an Author of the Month session on this on the RomanceDivas forum (I think in 2009) and it may still be up there if you want to have a look. Though I think you'll have to create an account to access that.

Achievements today:
