Writing an Outline

A stack of 3×5 cards can be an invaluable part of the plotting process. If you are like me, you will use a stack of post-it notes. Or some writers just use a single sheet of paper. The choice is yours.

Now follow your instinct. Start with the end, then the beginning, then the middle, then the two sides of the middle, before and after, then work out the scenes that link these moments.
