There are many articles on the snowflake method for novel writing but most of them seem to lack examples and some of the top results on Google (here, here, and here) are advertisements for software or books. I wanted to offer a blog post that provided valuable advice with an example of a novel that I am drafting and will use for other purposes on my blog.
Why Would I Use The Snowflake Method?
You might be asking what makes the snowflake method useful. The answer is very simple. I am using it because it allows you to explore your story.
If you want a solid plot the snowflake method allows you to work on the plot step by step, starting out with the most basic aspect and expanding from there. That will allow you to discover most plot problems before you start writing.
Also, right now I have had a lot of writers block. The snowflake method helps you to develop your story and get past writer’s block by forcing you to think about your story on your own terms.
