to plot or not

I wonder if other writers do this?

(It's word weaving)

why not...it makes so much sense this way...i can picture a design wall full of pictures like a family tree, with thoughts and plots strung together. but then i am a visual person.

I think you have to do this. And if you write a sequel you'll have these notes to help you do background.

I remember writing papers in college--I wrote down things on note cards I found interesting as I was reading. After, I sorted the cards into "like minded piles" and then wrote the paper--had the footnote info right there. Easy peasy.

I'd even make a story board (if I was you) and have pictures and such (from magazines) to illustrate the character. Not that I would ever tell a writer how to write. LOL

It reminds me of a Data Flow Diagram, which is a program design tool I learned to use in my coding days. Anything to help you outline is useful so you don't get bogged down without a road map! Think of taking a trip not knowing where you are, or where you are going... not fun!

If they do...I'm not sure they do it on such a beautiful backdrop with such a cute helper!!

TGIF even tho I only went back to work just yesterday.

My Swedish ivy is loving being back outside. I need to get some small pots to start a squad of offspring for gift giving. On sale at ...

Play it again Sam.
