I heard Randy Ingermanson, the Snowflake Guy or America’s Mad Professor of Fiction Writing, speak at a Willamette Writers meeting in Portland, Oregon this spring and was intrigued by his Snowflake Method for writing a novel. At his website I found a terrific article explaining the method in more detail and a whole lot more, including informational articles and software.
While you’re visiting his site, it’s well worth your time to sign up for his Advanced Fiction Writing E-zine. It’s packed full of useful information and you can find an archive of past issues located under the E-zine heading on his website. You’ll also find a link to his blog.
Lots of good information here.
