Plotting Along a Straight Line

More novel plotting. Similar to the other sketch, this one was actually done first. I find these useful for reference, especially when I get stuck. A member of my Santa Barbara writers’ group, who is further along in his novel draft than I am in mine, suggested jumping ahead as a way to combat writers’ block. I found this advice extremely useful. When I’m stuck on one section, moving on to a completely different section can get the writing flowing again, and it’s handy to have an outline of what I’m doing.
