The "No-Tech" Storyboard! ; )

When I first wrote my book, Legend of the Mer (1979), it was a handwritten manuscript of about 62 pages.  Then in 2007 - 2008, I seriously sat down and rewrote the story hand-typing  it on my Brother electric typewriter.  In 2009 I transferred it to computer and by November of that year, I sent it for copyright.

Even though I have access to a computer now, I can tell you that I'm still an old fashioned kind of girl.  I guess I like the smell and feel of paper and especially sticky notes!  Lol!  

What I'm trying to say is, no matter how you outline your story, just write!  If there's a story within you waiting to be birthed, you just need to begin!  ; )

  2. I know two authors who always use sticky notes so they can make sure the time lines in their books are correct. It's a great idea.

  6. I would love to use a typewriter...but I don't have one! It's how I learned to type at school, though it was a fancy schmancy electric one.

  8. Yeah, just for convenience's sake. I think typewriters would be better on my eyes though ;)

  10. I like this--a story is a story, no matter how it is written down!
