Brainstorming on Poster Board:
Poster Board with sticky notes – Link – Another great brainstorming method is to use a poster board along with colored sticky notes. Or you can use a dry erase board with colored dry erase markers to outline by subject, etc. Use your creative juices here, folks!
- Order your thoughts, scenes, and storyline on sticky notes or dry erase board and put in order on your poster board or dry erase board (you can even use dry erase markers on a window).
- Color coordinating the sticky notes (or dry erase markers) by character is even more helpful, engaging your senses in understanding your story, your characters, and the order of the overall story. At a glance, in a super visual way, you know what is going on.
- See below an example of a poster board outline completed for one of my novels.
