Writing Method: Snowflake by Randy Ingermanson (Printable Summaries)

Randy Ingermanson is a theoretical-physicist-turned-author who uses the same left-brain logic from his first career to organize his right-brain’s creativity when writing a novel.  He is famously known for his novel structuring process called the Snowflake Method.

I find the method to be interesting and helpful, but the actual article expounding it a bit long-winded (approx. 3,500 words in length). I felt it would have been nice to have more of a bird’s-eye-view of the process.

So I decided to create a summary of it myself. Or rather, summaries. They are basically brief overviews of the same article just organized/presented in different ways (because I feel it helps in creating multiple neural connections). Feel free to check them out here: Snowflake Method Summaries & print out any you prefer.

  1. This is great! I’ve been looking into a writing method that will help me actually get more things down (instead of just writing and hoping I’ll remember everything I’ve thought up) and this looks perfect for me. I’ve spent the last few days working on the first few steps and it’s definitely going well and inspiring me to keep at it!

    1. That’s great to hear, Allison! Randy’s method is really methodical and comprehensive, which is why it’s so useful. Are you prepping for nanowrimo 2017? Or just for regular writing?
