This novel that I started plotting out just today (very interesting idea, in my head anyway) is being planned out alot more than the others. With this, I hope to actually finish it, unlike others, and be happy with a good piece.
For instance, I used to just jot a few plot points a chapter, and write from that. But now I tend to write maybe three quarters of a typed page of plotting, a virtually summarised version of the chapter. I will just go through and write everything down that happens in a writing style, rather than dot points.
Another, more unorthodox method I do is write the first and last couple sentences of the chapter at the top and bottom of the summary, so I have something to move between.
What do you do?
