My little experiment worked! Or at least, something did. I finally finished draft two of Genesis.
Will I use this method before the first draft, as Whitcomb does? Meh, probably not. I'm too much of a pantser to use it for every scene, especially if not written yet. But it is a new tool to add to my writer's toolbox.
Maybe it'll help you, too. Let me know if you give it a try. I'd love to hear your results.
Have you discovered any new tools lately? How did they work out for you?
