But for Foxfire, I knew I needed to add a few scenes here or there and more importantly I needed to list out all the scenes to try and figure out where the chapter breaks fall (since I do not write with chapters in mind).
Here's the results:
The green notes (though they look a bit yellow in the pic) are scenes from MC Fox's POV while the pink ones are scenes from MC Quill's POV.
The blue ones are scenes from any other characters (of which include 2 antagonists and 4 other minor characters)
Counting the Prologue (which will be cut) and the epilogue I have 24 chapters, though I plan on combining some of those single scene chapters or adding another scene here or there.
The gaps are chapter breaks and though some of them look much much longer than the others, some of the scenes are only a page or two, especially with that long chapter towards the right. Also that one might need to be broken up a bit.
I need a blue card earlier in the story and also I think I need to break up that long pink Quill stretch, but we'll see.
It's kind of neat, seeing my story structure in a physical manner.
Does anyone else do any scene-blocking during revisions?
Also here is the answer to yesterday's post:
1. I have had a menagerie of pets, including squirrels, ducks, dogs, guinea pigs, rats, gerbils, hamsters, chameleons, fish and raccoons
This one is a lie. I've never had a raccoon
2. My favorite vegetable is carrots
No thanks on carrots. Unless they come from my own garden. Then they taste delicious
3. I've broken my clavicle twice
DING DING! This one is the true one! I broke it when i was an infant when my mom tripped and fell over a garden hose while carrying Twin and I. The second time Twin broke it when were were 6 and wrestling
4. I hate watching Supernatural
This one is an obvious bold faced lie. There is nothing to even dislike about this show
5. One of my favorite places to shop is Wal-Mart
Nope. I avoid it at all costs
6. I really don't like to play boggle
Lie! Who doesn't like to play boggle? I even had it on my phone
7. I've been to Italy, Austria and France
I've been to Italy and Austria but not France.
So there you have it! Congrats to anyone who guessed correctly!
