That being said, I still can't live without the feel and look of pen on paper. And I think that's what's been slogging me down with all this synopsis writing rigamarole (isn't that a fun word?). The creative process doesn't work as well for me by simply typing words. I need to draw out a plot. Literally. Draw.
Seeing a story in picture form, at least it's bare elements, makes much more sense in my head than seeing it typed out. I'm not talking sketch worthy art pieces or even little stick figures. Just the act of drawing a mountain shape on a paper and organizing major plot points on that line gets the ol' juices flowing.
Writer takeaway value of the day...get out your Crayolas. It's okay if you need to color to get a story right. I just gave myself permission, so here's yours. Go for it.
And if you'd like me to post your picture, send it to me.
