I either use index cards with different colors and write the progression of each plot line scene by scene on them, then layer them in a stack. Or I work from pages with each plot line written out and I check off the events as I use them. I do a lot of re-reading and writing down what happens in each chapter so I can see the progression of the plot lines and the disclosure of facts to make sure they are in the right order and done in a way to maximize suspense. It's the biggest job when writing in his genre! (less)

“We are small, inconsequential beings. It is only our place in the hearts of others that fills us up, that gives us our purpose, our pride, and our sense of self. We need our parents to love us without condition, without logic, and beyond reason. We need them to see us through lenses warped by this love and to tell us in every way that just having us walk this earth fills them with joy.”
Wendy Walker, All Is Not Forgotten

“With youth comes the inability to know what’s going to happen as a decision is played out. It is one of the greatest shames of the human experience that by the time we know how to conduct ourselves in an appropriate manner, there’s little conducting left to do. Fairview”
Wendy Walker, All Is Not Forgotten

“Sorry happens after something bad has happened, after people have let it happen. It had become contemptuous to me, all these I’m-so-sorries.”
Wendy Walker, Emma in the Night
