Friday Photo: Scene Board

(c) Sloan Parker 2011

Just for fun here’s the scene board for Take Me Home (cleverly covered by my editing check marks to avoid spoilers). Each scene actually has 8 or more check mark post-its. I kept track of my read-throughs on a scene-by-scene basis. First time I’d ever done that, and it worked well for me. Gave me a nice sense of accomplishment at the end of every day.

    • LOL @ Elaine. I am sometimes. The scene-by-scene overview helps me to see the big picture. It also assists in evaluating the overall pacing and keeping track of the various plot threads throughout the story.

  1. Oooo!!! I hope you don’t mind if I borrow this fantastic idea! I’ve been trying to think of a better way to organize my writing, and I LOOOOVE post-it notes! :D

    • You should definitely try it, Ayda. I use a foam board and the post-it notes stick really well. They are great for moving around the scenes when I’m revising, and putting it all on a board like this helps me get a good overview of the action vs sex vs introspection, etc. Good luck if you try it out! Let me know how it goes.
