I use a lot of post-it’s! I do the post-it exercise that I learned in ’s Storyteller Academy class. I also use them to pace my WIP. I place them on a PB book that has excellent pacing so I can see where I need to expand, cut etc. It also helps with page turns.

I'm with the both of you. I bring my laptop in the shower. Nope, not kidding. It's where all my best ideas strike.

I storyboard a lot! It really helps me see the flow of my story.

I should storyboard, especially since i draw (but don't illustrate professionally). But for some reason, I find them tedious. IK many love them (and I like looking at others' storyboards. Just not my own).

I can’t draw either! Stick figures all the way! But it forces you to consider if a scene can be illustrated, if there’s enough variation from spread to spread etc.

Where can I learn about this post-it exercise? And they're good for pacing. And page turns? Now I'm realy interested in learning more.

Ok, I looked this up and it sounds REALLY AWESOME!!! but I'm a little confused. Do you use this, Rebekah? Do you draw outside of it and tape things into it? Do you draw in it after you've tabbed the book alphabetically? Do you add other people's drawings? Help!

I have the same feelings + questions, Larissa. Thanks for sharing, Rebekah. I'm interested in using this, but as a non-illustrator. Reminds me of a sketchbook filled with something like a pinterest board, organized alphabetically for easy idea generation. Pretty cool.

This is mine. After that class I started placing some of my drawings in it, and if I think of it, I doodle something and place it in. With thesis taking over, it’s still sparse, but in progress, and fun!

Rebekah, I like the visual component of this. I'd be able to take my idea book but develop it (using this idea) so that it's even more effective for generating ideas. Thanks again for sharing.

Having someone to be accountable to really helps me. I have a critique group and 12x12, which both really help me stay accountable. I’m horrible at setting and keeping my own deadlines, but if I know I have a meeting coming up, you bet I’m working on my ideas.
