Re: How to keep track

January 05, 2021 09:21PM
If you find that you're having trouble keeping track, then keep notes. This group has fallen into a very weak posting pace, so that makes it very hard to keep your head in the game. When I was doing the CO/SM thing, I kept a VERY brisk pace, but that was a different time and my crew was very into that tempo. My other site that I write on is also a little slow these days, but at least the goal there is to make a couple of posts per week. At my peak, I was making about 50-60 posts per week.

When the posting is very long in between and/or you have lots of NPCs that you're keeping track of, then notes are a must. I like to keep at least an outline and some bullet points for the characters. You need to have a rough bio, some background and an idea of where you want to go with them. If you're going to need to come back to certain details, then you will want to keep at least a brief log that will remind you of enough detail to fill in someone else, should you need to tell the story to them.

Good writing requires a certain degree of organization. That said, this is a great place to experiment. For example, I have been writing about synthetic life forms now for something over 10 years. I have reinvented the concept a number of times, starting over and over, based on what I learned does and does not work. It can be a great process.
