Re: Question regarding tools.
I like using small index cards. Each card can have a scene, start, end, outcome. I find the cards useful because
- you can shuffle the scenes until you're happy with the order
- you can lay all the cards out and see your story developing, and maybe spot places where you are labouring the point, or underdeveloped areas
- you have to write on the cards. That's the most important thing. just thinking and not writing means, for me at least, that my story isn't developing
