This week I’m reviewing all the chapters for story problems to solve. There are loops I need to close and story points I need to figure out. Many times I’ll come up with a good idea to add to the story but it’s unfocused or unfinished. I’ll add it then realize while editing that I never finished figuring it out.
Though I do everything in Scrivener, I decided to try writing down some of the more difficult problems on large sheet of paper I’d taped to the wall. I thought about using index cards but there is something very cool about seeing the questions on the wall like that.
It’s a simple idea and works well for me. I like how it helps keep the story problems percolating around.
