Index Cards

I like index cards because I can jot down individual plot points without worrying about what order they’re in, then I can lay them out or shuffle them into whatever order I wish. It’s sort of like a shuffle-able outline. Just like other outlines, ideas will get dropped, but for me, probably the most valuable part of this exercise is just writing the ideas down. For book 5, I sat in a café writing down ideas that had just been in my head, and others that occurred to me at the time as I sat there sipping a latte.
