So, this topic is about your favourite way to write, organise your writing time, plan out a book, and so on.

My original method was to simply start writing, but right now I'm trying Storyboarding.

Never heard of this method before! How does it work?
I'm going to try this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UW4Y...
Basically it comes down to writing a "crappy first novel", wait a few months and look back at it (as if you are the reader now), to learn from your mistakes (before publishing it). This will make you learn the process of writing a book and finish it, without having to worry about its perfection. I hope this method will make me actually finish writing the book, even though it will be a crappy one.


Ayla (ParadisePinkPages) (goodreadscomayla) Oh and I have a few thread ideas! Would you mind if I create some new ones?

Ugh! I thought storyboarding was just a fancy term describing writing down all the main parts of the story in bullet points to plan ahead! I just looked it up to find you a link and it's something totally different! here's the link anyway. https://multimedia.journalism.berkele...
That crappy first novel thing sounds like a good idea. I should probably try it as it always takes me ages to even write one sentence with all the editing I do!

I use my dreams to write stories with. I've tried other methods and they became a disaster.

Huh... that's pretty awesome! My dreams are always weird and garbled, if I tried to base a book on them it wouldn't end well!

Usually my dreams make no sense but I do use the random story thoughts I have in school and at home. Also I base some of my writing off of my life at school, well an exaggerated version really
