How do you organize your story ideas? For me, the best way to organize is with color.
I'll use blue-inked pens or blue sticky notes to help me remember what questions I have about a story. (Why did the donkey steal the boy's hat? What is the importance of the hat?)
Pink sticky notes or red-inked pens are often what I have forgotten when it comes to punctuation. (Did I remember to put quotes around the boy's explanation? Should I italicize the donkey's bray?)
Yellow highlighting and sticky notes ...
