How I Plan my stories
I myself used to have a lot of trouble plotting out my novels and everything properly, but now I’ve found a gr9 way to do it.
First, I open up OpenOffice’s Slideshow option, becuase I’m too broke to pay for Powerpoint. Then I create a table. I use 5 columns and 7 rows. I then edit it to whatever size I wish, and change the colours to whatever I want, but usually keep it the same colour for each column on every slide to make things easier to remember for myself.
Before I type anything else, when I am satisfied with the layout I made, I go to Insert>Duplicate Slide for about three or four times so I need not keep making the table.
Make the first column albeit tinier because that is just where I put the chapter number. The second one should be the biggest as it’s the main point of that certain scene or part of the chapter. The third column will be for emotion or feeling while the scene takes place. The fourth will be for the characters that appear in the certain scene, and the last one is for personal notes or things I need to take note of,
The main way I plot is I first type out a summary to clarify what the story will be about and so I do not go off topic. Then I make it a bit more detailed. Then, based on it, I start filling in the tables.
I do not go by chapter, but instead scenes as I mentioned earlier. So just one or two short sentences to sum it up. The emotions are so I write with more emotion and feeling to give it a more human feeling.
And when I’m done with all the plotting, I go through the draft once more to fix any mistakes. And as tempting it feels to start writing even though you’re only half way through plotting, only start writing the first draft once the whole plot is done. You never know when you get a big plot hole.
When I’m finished with the first draft I read through it and edit. If it’s bad I re-do everything with that as my reference, along with the original table.
So, this is just a guide of how I plan out my books, I hoped it helped a little bit!
Here’s a step-by-step for this drawing, made with the layers I had in the PSD. I more or less follow the same formula unless I need to make a really detailed painting, that’s when I’ll make lineart out of the sketch(and be neater overall).
