Writing Prompt #114

On more than one occasion, I’ve run across storyboards as a technique for plotting a novel. The idea is that the visual helps a writer notice plot holes.

The software program Scrivener uses a corkboard like virtual index cards. This sounds so cool. Unfortunately, it only works on a Mac, and although I use a Mac at work, I have a PC at home. Sniff.

For today’s prompt, use the concept of a storyboard to plot out something. Write scenes on index cards (or coloured post-it notes) and lay them out on the floor or a wall. Take note of plot holes and weakness. Figure out what you need to place where.
