#FirstDraft60 Day 37 — Weekly Story Bible Check Up

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

#FirstDraft60 | KayeDacus.comIn order to be able to focus on writing as much as we can on a daily basis, keeping our Story Bibles updated is going to be important. So on Wednesdays, be sure to schedule additional time to review your Story Bible and see what needs to be updated or revised.

Since Story Bibles can start to get kind of massive, here are the sections to focus on reviewing/updating:

  • Backstory, GMC, and Description pages for the main character(s).
  • Settings section
  • Timeline section
  • Revisions section
  • Style Guide
  • Synopsis/Outline (in case your recent writing has made you think of any new scenes/plot points you want to add—or realize that some of the ones you thought of before you started writing no longer work).

And don’t forget to check in with your writing progress!

For a 75,000-word manuscript, today’s cumulative word-count should be at least 17,500 words.
