So, to lead myself through the endless quagmire that is Making-A-Sensible-Plot-Out-Of-All-My-Ideas, I’ve created a Master Excel file. In it, each scene has a name, along with a word count, plot summary, and notes on possible revisions.
One of the fun parts is trying to think of names for the scenes: names that are evocative enough that I can just read quickly through the list and recall the plot. Some I’ve come up with so far:
- Father, I Have Sinned
- Desperately Seeking Koko
- Save My Child!
- Can I Trust You?
- Whir, Whir, Whir, Whir, Splat!
