About This Class

4f0be484

In this class, you will learn how to create a stylish timeline for your novel or writing project that allows you to organize layers of details without cluttering up your outline. By using sticky notes and string, you can keep yourself on track while still being able to make changes, hone, or even reinvent your plot as you write. It's the perfect combination of "plotting" and "pansting" no matter if you're working on a paper or that novel you've always wanted to write.
