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)

“I think there are two types of people. Ones who have a scream inside them and ones who don’t.”
Wendy Walker, Emma in the Night

“The truth is, nothing really matters unless we decide it matters.”
Wendy Walker, Emma in the Night

“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.”
