Depending on the size of your story, whether its three books, a hundred, or has a mile list of characters and places, an outline and a few notes might not be enough.
Because eventually our minds will simply implode and no one will know how to put the pieces back together. For your own safety then, get organized.
Um..how? There’s a pile of handwritten notes, folders of printed notes, pictures, drawings, saying that you have got to beware.
Tape everything to the back of your closet wall, like I did. Clothes were constantly in my way. Also I could only see it if the doors are open, and let’s be honest, no one has a good looking closet. Certainly not mine.
And don’t leave everything in the pile.
There are 2 alternatives:
1: create a storyboard wall in another place. This is a really good idea, however, you need a wall. Empty walls are hard to come by, especially if you feel Scandinavian (like me).
Binders are best. Organized and mobile.
I made two. One for Facts and the other for Images.
There you have it!
