I sat down last night and began working on the new outline for FLOAP. Instead of doing my usual outline, or even a phase outline, last night I opened a brand new package of index cards and started writing events that I know take place in the story. When I finally finish that, I can organize them into a timeline and create a phase outline from that. Isn't that pretty clever? I tried to do that ages ago with my very first fanfic and it didn't work so well for me then, but that story was utter crap and that is probably why. Besides, I was using the cards differently then. I just need to remember to print up ALL of my notes before I go home today since I won't have internet this weekend. I can work on FLOAP and make myself happy. I think I'm going to pick up a few more packages of cards and do the same thing for Silk & Cyanide, since they are both such complex stories. Will let you know how it turns out!
