Everybody talks about writing a plot and an outline.
Some only need a starting point to write a novel. Others need a start, middle, and end. Others again need details for every scene.
I experiment a lot, and at the moment, I have beats written for every chapter, and then I detail outline a chapter only right before I’m going to write it.
Sometimes, I get stuck. I have a beat that says, “prince proposes”. What on Earth more should I put into that chapter?
That’s where my Socrates plotting method comes in handy and saves me every time.
