The next step: The Snowflake Method

snowflakephotoFor National Novel Writing Month, I wrote a rough draft of a novel called The Deity Run. Instead of “rough draft,” a more accurate term would be “discovery draft” for in this first writing, I usually discover the characters, plot, theme and more about my story.

Now that I have my “discovery draft” for The Deity Run, I am using The Snowflake Method to further develop it. It doesn’t necessarily require software, but the creator the Snowflake Method, Randy Ingermanson, developed inexpensive software to help a writer create a novel from beginning to end.

I do have the software and I am rewriting the next draft of my novel using the Snowflake Method. I’ve already started. I’ll be journaling updates in this blog.

Next: I’ll describe the Snowflake Method

Two things I love to do the most include graphic design and writing. I was an editor at a publishing company for several years; I saw the graphic designers at work and thought, 'I'd like to do that.' So I went to art school. I love to read, write and draw. Yes, I am a creative nerd type. I like to read all kinds of books, but science fiction and fantasy is my guilty pleasure. Why am I keeping this blog? It's just a place to keep my thoughts. My brain is getting too full to store them all, so this place is a good annex.
