I've stayed up most of the night storyboarding. I've never been a very good storyboarder. World builder, yes. Dialogue maker, sure. But storyboarding? Ugh, its exhausting. I know it's an essential part of writing, especially bigger pieces, but man it's so boring.

Well when I was younger, I didn't. I just wrote whatever came to mind and went with it. As I've gotten older I've realized for some stories there needs to be more structure. So I make fixed points in time. I make a list of all the things that /must/ happen in the story. Then I gradually make my way outwards. I never lay out the story in its entirety because where would the fun be in that. But yeah, big fixed points, then little points, then filler.
