A good idea for those who outline their stories. Personally, I write by the seat of my pants…This means I have over 80 draft stories on my computers…If I can’t remember something I go back and re-read…get into the story. Another way I am going to start to work is by compiling info for each book…I suppose they could be called a character list. Thanks for the post.
Here’s a quick tip for those of you who already like to outline: save your outlines for your older books.
I’m now over 30 books in and I’ve found my memory seriously failing when it comes to remembering non-recurring characters and plots.
The problem is most-evident with books published 8-10 years ago, but I may also struggle with details from books I wrote last year.
There are just too many books.
Or maybe it’s just that my memory completely stinks. 🙂
