Not too long ago I showed you guys what Michael’s doodles look like. Well this is what mine look like (can you guess why I don’t draw?).

Although I’m a computer junkie and do all my writing on the computer, I do almost all my notes and planning on computer paper and keep them in a clipboard/folder.

These are my notes for Volume 2 of “Holiday Wars” (the pic is intentionally blurred to prevent spoilers). What you’re looking at is the full scene breakdown (a list of every scene for each of the acts) as well as other character growth related notes. I first started planning volume 2 in the spring of 09 and to date I probably have 20-30 pages shoved in my clipboard  representing each of the drafts/revisions to the outline.
