I’m making a storyboard as I edit because it helps me focus. A storyboard describes what happens in each scene and lays the scenes out in sequence. It captures the this and that’s of what happens.

When I wrote my first novel, I was still learning how to write and I had to do many revisions. This aggravating process led forced me to reread chapters over and over again. Rereading starts to suck, after a while. Storyboarding, after the first draft, breaks up the rut.
