#LeapAheadWritingMarathon Day 11: Storyboarding with Kaye in 2011 (#TBT!)

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Leap Ahead Marathon LogoHow did your word-count challenge go yesterday?

True confession time: I didn’t do ANY writing at all yesterday. I’d planned to participate in a writing sprint in the evening with my grad-school writing group, but after watching Criminal Minds, I ended up going to bed early with a weather-induced migraine (my head/sinuses are overly sensitive to changing barometric pressure). So instead of writing at least 1,971 words, I wrote none. Boo!

But I’m also getting to a point in the story at which the real historical events are going to start influencing/dictating how my plot unfolds—and that means I need to do some planning. And for me, planning means . . .

STORYBOARDING!

I’ve written about storyboarding here on the blog plenty of times (e.g., here, here, here, here, and here—if you visit all of these posts, please understand I believe in recycling!).

But since I’d posted an inspirational video last week, I went to YouTube to find another one for this week. When I couldn’t find one among the many I’ve saved that really spoke to me this week, I clicked to another list—only to realize I’d clicked the wrong thing and ended up on the list of the videos I’d uploaded. And oddly, I found one from 2011 that I didn’t even remember doing. And it was about storyboarding! So that’s the video “inspiration” I’m sharing today.

To begin with, here’s the image of scene cards from The Art of Romance that I reference in the video.

Happy Writing (and Storyboarding)!
