I fail to see the problem with that approach.I just get wasted, yell for valhalla and charge in blind.
Yeah, my take on it is that it's more like a guideline. The spreadsheet makes sense to me, as I would like to be able to see the full layout of the story.And Broamir, that snowflake method does look interesting! At least until I got to the part about the spreadsheet. Then my thought was "if I'm going to spend time creating a spreadsheet to detail what happens in a scene, why not actually write the scene?" Then again, I tend to work in a more linear fashion, rather than the modular approach the creator of the snowflake method seems to take (I can see how that can work for some people and novels. My own approach is much more dependent on cause-and-effect).
Oh, these are all from a list of ideas I have written down. I peruse it ever so often, revisiting old concepts, maybe merging it with new ones. All very fun.Be sure to jot down all three ideas and save a copy on your computer. That way you can refer to them later.
The Fountain of Youth concept has a much more filled out plot, but the setting and world for the Pan-mythology is better developed and more compelling for me. I'd say they both have rather half-baked characters for both. Pan-Mythology I think has more scenes and characters, but they're more disjointed. I'm further along with the world for the Fountain of Youth than I am with the plot for Pan-Mythology.Once they are all down in a more solid format, though, it becomes easier to evaluate. Which one do you have the most scenes or characters planned out in your head, if any? That's usually what does it for me. Sometimes I might not actually use the scene that I had visualized, but it will give you direction or motivation, at least.
Haha, I hear you. My list has 25 half-baked ideas right now. I don't know what's normal, but it at least feels like a lot to me.I keep coming up with all these awesome ideas, but I don't know if they're developed enough to really use for this event. I also don't know whether or not I should just try and commit to one, or wait until I write out a little of all of them to see which clicks the best.
