Love the links and plotting = UGH

     Plotting. A big fat UGH. I didn't plot SEVENTY TWO HOURS, and I paid the price during my 5000 revisions. So with this next book I have a synopsis and I am plotting my way through.

     So how do I plot? I'm using Storybook. It helps you with structuring your book. Managing scenes, characters, locations. And keeps it all in one place. The best part? FREE! The hubby loves that word. ;)

Need help with plotting? Here is a free toy that should help your plotting time be a pleasurable experience.

Here's a great link for children's writers. Great posts, interviews, just fun stuff. I love that place. I'm not from Utah, but this is a great blog. Check it out.

Short post today, but home-school is just starting and I am plotting away. *wink*

  4. I don't plot, but now that I'm knee deep in edits, maybe I can put Storybook to good use! We're starting to gear up for this homeschooling year, too :)
