NaNo-ing the Snowflake

Some NaNoWriMo crazy posted a link to The Snowflake Process for outlining and developing a longer work of fiction.

At a glance-through, this Snowflake Process points up one of my biggest flaws as a fiction writer: I get to about the middle stage, a sort of storyboarding with snippets of dialog, and mistakenly think I've actually written a scene. There are four or five more stages to go through after that (and I go through them, but now I know that's how it's supposed to happen).

Systems like this aren't for everyone. But I'm a lot less proud than I used to be over ownership of my peculiar style of doing things--a lot more willing to try it someone else's way when "MY WAY!" doesn't quite pan out.
