When it comes to plotting, this is what I do.
Drink lots of tea and eat biscuits, and wonder why I think I can write.
No, no, wait, sorry, that’s just what I do all the time.
When it comes to plotting this is what I do.
- Get a piece of paper
- Draw a squiggly snake (or if I’m feeling particularly creative, a set of connected arrowheads)
- Then I write out what I think would be my first scene or image
- Then I think of what happens next…AND THEN this happens. The big thing here is the AND THEN *has* to be an action. It can’t be “and then she thinks of Roderick,” unless it’s “and then she thinks of Roderick and goes to see him.“
- I keep going until the only AND THEN left is “AND THEN, the end.”
