Plotting with a Storyboard:
Have you heard the saying – a picture is worth a thousand words? A plot board, or story board, is a visual representation of your book. It’s a visual view of your book, a quick overview of the flow of your story. It allows you to quickly see an overview of your book without having to read paragraphs in a synopsis or notes in a notebook. It also facilitates plot brainstorming and helps keep you writing during the process.
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to set up your storyboard for brainstorming, writing and revising your manuscript.
Ever since Megan Ryder discovered Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught while sneaking around the “forbidden” romance section of the library one day after school, she has been voraciously devouring romance novels of all types. Now a romance author in her own right, Megan pens sexy contemporary novels all about family and hot lovin’ with the boy next door. She lives in Connecticut, spending her days as a technical writer and her spare time divided between her addiction to knitting and reading.
“For your born writer, nothing is so healing as the realization that he has come upon the right word.”
