Index cards, both paper and computer, gave me a different way to look at the story. First, I wrote a thought - a possible scene or not - on each card. Very quickly they became unmanagable so I transferred that into index cards in Scrivener (and Index Card for iPad) where I could move them around easily. I didn't worry about chapters (something I spend too much time trying to determine too early). Next I put a little something into the body of the index card about what I wanted to convey in that scene. That helped determine where other scenes needed. I found that the story was unfolding on story boards.

I also realize that instead of writing in a linear fashion, I can write scenes that are leaping out at me first and piece them together later.

Um, and I think my characters are getting much younger. This could be a children's story. *insert shocked face!*
