I haven’t been posting. Instead, I’ve been posterboarding:
See what I did there?
Books are complex, man. I never have to plotboard for my short stories.
Related: I’m so out of practice. I haven’t made a plot board since Rampant, and that one kind of went off the rails. I fought to keep this one as simple as possible. Too complex, and you can’t see what the problems are.
Of course, I now know plotboards don’t ALWAYS help. For instance, though it did help me see one problem (not enough yellow), it totally glossed over another problem that I know from the text I’m having. Because although you can have all the ingredients in the dish, it doesn’t mean you are using them in the right order or the the right amount.
I repeat: Books are complex, man. And hard. Did I mention hard?
