Hey guys! Here’s a quick update about my own journey.
After a few hours of re-writing and re-plotting my (hopefully) soon-to-be novel, I can officially say that I have taken the original plot of 44 scenes and transformed it into a more manageable plot of 29!
Just for kicks, here’s a picture of the old plot line compared to the new one. The old one is on the left, and the new one is on the right.
Do you like my origami pig in the background? As you can tell, I use the Note Card style of outlining, which I discussed in my Outlining post.
Anyway, I have the results of the poll I posted earlier allowing you guys to pick what my next post will be for you (this one doesn’t count.) And the winner is: Part 1 of a 3 part series about the 3 different acts in your stories!
Thanks everyone who voted for it! It was a tie between this and synopsis until today. Generally, I’ll keep the polls open for 72 hours so that you have enough time to ponder and vote. I’ll probably have a poll for every next post unless it’s a part of a series. So, now that I’m starting a 3 part series, I’ll have the next poll after the 3rd part is completed.
As always, thanks for reading!
