The cards

When I talk about cards I’m not talking about playing cards. I’m talking about the index cards I use for the timeline in my novel manuscript.

Index cards are good because you can add, remove and change the sequence of the cards. It saves alot of rewriting and allows you to see the big picture of the story unfolding.

Some writers use different colours to distingish the mood of the chapter or scene. I’m just happy to have a timeline I can change without pulling out too much hair.
