Two Reds, Two Oranges, One Yellow, and DONE!

The Wall is behind me. Nothing ahead now but green, green, mostly green. [g] I’m finished with 127,281 words revised out of a total of 184,702, and page 628 of 922.

Long, long writing day, and I never made it to ISY. But … damn. What I did get done makes up for that.

    I think this technique might be perfect to help me get through the first draft of my novel. I keep stopping and rewriting scenes, if I card them, I can get a move on — without losing my ideas.
    And congrats on your progress!

    Miss Neinke — it’s a technique I invented just for this book, so all I have are blog entries. The two relevant ones are Working Backward in Neon and The Line-for-Scene Is Done. I’ll note, as I’ve noted previously, that this technique is too much work for anything but a deeply wrecked book that has enough salvagable parts to make you want to save it.

    Holly, do you have an article posted on how you use the color-coded scene cards?
