Chart – Plot and World

Here is more of the early brainstorming for Jade Moon.

Hopefully you have you character chart explained in yesterday’s post. To continue discovering the repeating images and themes in your story, complete two more charts.

On a fresh sheet of paper, brainstorm everything you know about your book’s plot. This might include what happens, what your character’s goals are, her failures, and her successes. I give myself about 5-7 minutes to think and write.


Finally, write down everything you know about your story’s world – the place, the time period, the people in charge, the rules, the beliefs, the economics, the social norms.

Save those and we will do the last step tomorrow!
