Writing my first novel (not trying to sell it, just for fun) and I am having trouble planning it out. Most of my writing is short 1-10 pages and so I dont usually plan any of it. Im used to starting with an idea and putting the pen to paper and seeing where I end up. I found this method to be very difficult for a long story with multiple turning points.

Im used to video production where story boards are visual and the script is already written. I think this is why I am struggling. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
