A meta rec today: sholio
has a very useful post on the writing process
, with a detailed example.
Last year I read about the snowflake method, where you start with a one-sentence description of the plot, then expand it into a paragraph, then expand each sentence of the paragraph into a new paragraph, and so on. I kinda wanted to try it on something, and decided to use my SGA Santa story, because I had NO IDEA what to write about, and I figured that it would be a good idea to put it into practice.Since I kept all my notes, I basically have the whole process documented, so why don't I share it?
Interesting stuff. I'm a storyteller, not a writer, and the few times I set out to write my own comics have been a bit like pulling teeth (though, granted, not as painful) but that post really makes me want to put fingers to keyboard right away and try out the method she describes. I have one original comic and one fanfic project to try it on...
