The Fast Book Outliner of David Seah
That' s why I was thrilled that he brought out a new form: the Fast Book Outliner. Since Dave has designed the sheet to keep an overview of the memos to be used for the reviews or his own training (e.g. to read a textbook), highlighting is only good if you use a large number of markers, and you still have to rewrite.
It is also hard to see the STRUCTURES of your memos, unless you write a book report, then you have to do it sometime. When you try to study tricky materials, you want to get inside the note structures as well as the source pages.
That' awesome, but I'm gonna use it to design a book I'm in. Fast-book outliner is satisfying both my stationery flesh and my efficiency-increasing trend to put my idea in the long hand. It' a new shape, Dave acknowledges, and I think he'll be adjusting it soon. I' m going to put it through its paces in the next few months.
While working on my next book, I will use the Fast Book Outliner as much as possible and let you know what happens next. I am an optimist.
Outlining a book with Trello
Threello is an on-line helper that will help you organise a job and work with other people - useful for everything from redesigning your cuisine to working on your job and printing your novel. A Trello customer received the "Most Creativ Use of Trello" for creating a new book with the application. It is often used to manage process and pipeline management; the left-to-right frameworks seem natural for this type of use.
However, Douglas has come up with a completely new way of using this tool: he uses maps and listings to schedule the parts of a novel. I use this blackboard to gather and gather my memos and use them for a book I am plotting. I' m able to keep everything in one place and structure/replan ad-hoc by dragging maps between lists".
He uses concept, characters, plot, themes, motives, recurrent motives, ends, beginnings and research.
