While you’re plotting and developing your material, parts of the story might still seem like a skeleton, a little bare. Yet you probably have a vision for each scene you’re planning; you know what you want to achieve with each plot event. But there are risks. While you are outlining, you may become aware of some of the things that might go awry.

Use this PREMIUM function to make notes to yourself, warning yourself what to look out for when you get to actually writing the scene. These might be simple messages such as, “Keep this short” or “Increase the pace here”. Or they might be cautions such as, “Watch out, this could get tacky if you don’t handle it right,”or “See how Orson Welles did this in Citizen Kane, but don’t copy exactly!”
