Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Characters are dominating your thoughts, your fingers are itching to type and the beginning of a great story fills your computer screen. Then...silence. You reach that point in your story where your characters take a coffee break and you are left with writer's block.
This has happened to me more times than I wish to admit. The story my thoughts have been obsessed with are eventually filed away and forgotten. It is so frustrating.
New characters are once again running amuck in my head. This time I refuse to allow them to check out on me halfway through the story. My professor, Steve Alcorn, taught me that outlining is a wonderful technique. I agree it is a great idea. Today I read an article written by author Randy Ingermanson. Randy's technique is the Snowflake method. I am excited to use this method and thought I would share it with fellow authors. Let me know your thoughts.
