Mini Interview with Christine Husom, Author of the Winnebago County Mysteries

Second Wind: Do you have specific techniques you use to develop the plot and stay on track?

Christine Husom: I formulate some main plot points and build on them, but I don’t feel bound to follow a pre-set course. I’ve tried, and failed, to do outlines. Another technique I’ve tried with some success is to do a storyboard. You make twelve boxes (more or less) on a sheet of paper. In the first box you write the question your story asks. In the last box you write the answer to that question. The other ten boxes are the main events, or plot points, in your book. It’s a nice visual aid for me.
