I’m editing this week. And oh boy, I’ve found solid help.
Interested in checking this out? Here is the link to all five parts of Shawn Coyne’s mini-course: The Story Grid.
I’ve learned how to use a Googledocs spreadsheet and everything. So much easier than my poor handwritten “map.” That thing became so unwieldy that I abandoned it. I continued to write, but I lost track of details.
So far, the macro view of my novel looks spot-on. Since Darcy By Any Other Name has only one chapter to go, I’m content to follow the mini-course.
I’ll be buying and using The Story Grid for all future projects. As a tool it’s that solid and that helpful. Here’s the link to the Kindle edition.
Many thanks to Shawn Coyne for sharing his system with indie authors. And also to my friend and fellow writer, Susan Kaye for the recommendation.
