Planning a Novel

29 Jul

Oh this is neat:
Back to Planning a Novel In Detail

Like I said at the top, the easiest way to tackle planning a novel in depth is by breaking the story down into elements.

More specifically, the five tasks you need to perform during this step of the Novel Writing Process are…

1. Sow the Seeds of Theme and Symbolism
2. Decide on a Point of View
3. Create Your Fictional Characters
4. Construct the Novel’s Setting
5. Write Your Novel’s Central Plot

Step 6 of this 9-step process, incidentally, involves re-combining all of these individual story elements into what I call a “Master Plan”.

I’m one of those people who suck at planning and prefer just to write – need to get around that and become more efficient!
