Working Title for my part of the Angel's anthology.
I do not do extensive book plotting but instead I try to plot each scene very thoroughly. I use one page of notes to write a 5 to 10 page scene. Over time I have found that I do not fill in all of the blanks but instead use the most essential for that scene. I have put this form on my blog for anyone who wants to use.
