    Screen Writing for outlining?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by wilprim, Feb 28, 2012.

    So I have recently used a new technique to outline my stories, this is writing the whole story in dialogue and in the format of screen writing. This has really helped me outline many short stories and beginnings of novels. Is this a good technique? Or do you think it could lead to problems?

    If it works for you, go with it. Everyone has their own approach.

    i wouldn't advise it, but as cog says, what matters is only that it works for you...
