If you’re having trouble getting your basic novel idea worked out and expanded, you might consider trying The Snowflake Method.
This method of writing fiction will not work for everyone, but I’ve had some success with it and I’ve talked to other writers who have liked using it.
Basically, you start with one sentence, and then expand—making it more intricate and detailed as you go.
You can find complete instructions HERE. (I am not endorsing this guy’s products. This is a free info page and pretty much all you need to give The Snowflake Method a try.)
If you’ve tried The Snowflake Method (or decide to try it today), I’d really love to hear about your experiences.
- Did it work for you?
- What didn’t work?
- How did you tweak it to make it fit YOU?
