Technical question for writers Show more
Dunno if this helps but my current method for diagnosing coherence and direction in my outline is a spreadsheet. Each row is a scene. The columns are:
Scene (i.e. who/what/where/when)
"Mood" is what mood I want the reader to feel when reading the scene. "Questions" is what questions i want the reader to be curious about, to tempt them into turning the page.
