I'm taking a week long class on Storyboarding from Shelley Bradley. It's a lot of work to cover in a week when it's a brand new story. I like the technique though, so far.
I didn't realize how little I knew about the story until I started trying to fill in the Conflict Grid. As usual I have a nice intricate plot, which is good thing for an RS, but my people were a mystery. So last night, I completed most of the story grid and I'm going to sit down in a minute and catch up with the rest. I'll even get to put my colorful stickies on my foam board.
I'm feeling a lot better about my short contemp, Front Page Affair. Completed lots of work that needs to be keyed into the computer and cleaned up. I may use the storyboard to plot out the rest of the story.
In other news I lost a battle with the ant population. Yesterday morning I was up early because I had a business appointment. When I went to the bathroom it was covered in ants. Yuck. I got my arsenal of killer ant stuff out and realized I was all out. Quick shower, to the store for more, back home to sprinkle and spray before I left. Found more this morning so I had to do it all over again. I hate to have the outside sprayed around the foundation, which I hear works really well, because of the toxic nature. Being on a well, I try to keep anything harsh off my lawn. And it's not like the ants are harmful, just annoying.
