Your notebook is gapes open with scores of ideas scribbled in no particular order – organized chaos speaking volumes to the author. An outline beckons you to fill in the gaps and fatten its skeletal framed entity into a fat, juicy story.

A few weeks have passed and the little notebook, kept inseparably attached to your writing pen, is rapidly filling with notations, sketches, thoughts and images. Random though these may appear, you now have the opportunity to create an organized story out of the scrolled chaos scribbled over the pages of that precious little book.
The assembly of your cacography into a coordinated thread of ideas is the next step.
