Hey guys.
I recently read plot and structure by james scott bell and found it fantastic.
Anyways i am using index cards and i wrote up a rough guide of each chapter on an index card, and started typing away.
I am not up to chapter 4.
Its really exciting to see where your characters go, and how they grow.

I thought i would mention the index cards as that was a great tool for me to acomplish step 1 - the plot.
Thanks

Hi!

You seem to have wisely spent a wee while browsing since joining and before opening your first thread and that's good, but I think you should consider introducing yourself very soon in the Newbie Forum, projectaero.

Welcome :hi:
