Tip Tuesday #41

Please check out yesterday's post and giveaway if you missed it! Today I have a quick but awesome tip from my #1 tip contributor, Lisa Nowak! We heart you and your writing tips Lisa! Right guys? I hope you're following her!

When I’m doing revisions it can get confusing trying to follow a particular subplot. To make this easier, I create separate word documents for each subplot. I cut and paste every scene for a given subplot into its document, giving each scene a heading that includes the chapter and page number for easy reference. This allows me to quickly see all the scenes together so I can be sure I’ve included all the pertinent information without being repetitive.

I've done this with two larger plot lines but didn't think to do subplots. Brilliant! Thank you once again, Lisa!


  1. Oh, a great idea! Thanks, Lisa and Casey!

  2. That is a great idea! Now I need to work on my organizational skills.

  3. Okay. That is a BRILLIANT idea. Oh man. I am using this.... like right now!

  4. This is an excellent idea. I used to this a while ago but for some reason I stopped.

    Thanks for reminding me what a useful trick this can be

  5. so cool! thanks for the tip :D

  6. That's a great idea to keep the subplot straight from the main plot. Thanks for posting it.

  7. Brilliant. Especially if you have more than one subplot. Thanks!

  8. Ooh! I've done this before. So helpful. Yay! :d

  9. I like this! It's similar to isolating a character's dialogue to make sure you're keeping the voice unique.
    Thanks, Lisa and Casey.

  10. Thanks for the easy-to-use tip Lisa! This is an excellent way to keep many moving parts in order. Casey, can we include this in our Friday round-up? Thanks so very much!

  11. Thanks for sharing my tip, Casey! I'm glad so many people found it helpful.

  12. This was really helpful. Thanks so much for sharing!
