How are you prepping for #CampNaNoWrimo? While preparation for redrafting my WIP during camp, I’ve been busy putting together my Series Bible!
I’ve seriously started drafting this thing probably about 5 times now! But this July I’m committed to writing all the way through to “THE END”, and with this tool I feel so much more prepared!
If you don’t know, a SERIES BIBLE is a collection of character profiles, setting notes, and other story elements that you put together in order to use as a reference as you write, revise, or even to help you write sequels!
Mine isn’t quite complete yet (when it is, I’ll be making a VIDEO tutorial!) but so far, I’m including the following:
COVER PAGE: Goals:
Working Title & Writing, Revising & Publishing Deadlines
SECTION 1: Plot Pages:
Working Outline / Story Timeline
Logline & Summaries
Comparable Projects / Inspiration
Important Icons / Symbols
SECTION 2: Characters Profiles:
Heroes, Villains, Minors
(Physical Description, Personality, Beliefs, Skills, History, Arc, etc…)
SECTION 3: World Building Profiles:
World Map, History, Politics, Weather, Hierarchy, Rules, Magic Systems, People Groups, Key Places, etc…
Gosh, this has been soooo helpful! 🙌
