All stories begin with an idea. You take that idea and map out your story. But for many of us new authors, the question is, how? Sticky notes on a poster board, a detailed list in a notebook, or perhaps bullet notes in word?
Enter, Plottr--an author’s tool to not only plot your story, but keep track of story time lines and so much more, all in one easy-to-use application.
We've got Ryan and Cameron from Plottr here to dig into this author-friendly tool live on The Writer's Journey.
Hosts: Lauren Moore, Kalene Williams Special Guests: Cameron Sutter, Ryan Zee, Josh Hayes
