Default Re: What's your outlining process?

I usually build the script in my head and don't bother with any form of written notes. However, my latest script has two parallel stories, one told chronologically, the other in a series of non-sequential flashbacks.

My brain is not sufficiently evolved to cope with this, so I've mapped the whole thing out on an Excel spreadsheet, with a column for each story, broken up into scenes, with the non-sequential storyline color-coded so that I can cut and paste scenes into the chronological column as required. If any of that makes sense, let me know.

The script might not amount to much, but the spreadsheet looks pretty cool.
