Outlining with Index Cards
September 18, 2010 § Leave a comment
Each chapter is summarized on separate index cards. Each synopsis card will be attached at the front of a tab index, and all scenes related to that chapter will be placed under that tab. If I need to add a chapter I’ll just have to insert an additional tab index between two chapters. It should also be easy to shuffle the indexes around, if I chapters/scenes need to switch places. I’m also creating index cards for particular places, for instance, “the hide-out”, “the jeweller’s”, with descriptions and ‘facts’ about these locations for quick reference.
