How to Plot Like a Grim
In ten simple steps, you too can plot like a Grim.  ;P
1. Get an idea
This can be a brief snippet of dialogue. Or an ending that just seems perfect.  Sometimes it's just the concept of what I'd like to see a character go through.  I write that down.  Usually it doesn't see the cold light of day for at least a couple months, but when I've thought about it long enough and can't seem to get the idea out of my head, that's when I sit down and start plotting things out a bit.
2. Work out the basic plot
Now that I've got the idea, I need to work out the basic details.  But how do I do that?  Well, I write it down.  Then I think about the different angles to get to that idea.  I write those down.  If it's dialogue, who's talking? What do they feel? Who are they talking to?  If it's a snippet of a scene, who's in the scene? Why are they there? What are they doing? What's going on outside of that scene?

So I went and gave in, and got myself a 3DS.. yep, I guess I'm getting back into gaming..
So now I'd like to know if any of you lovely people on my friends list also have AC, and would like to exchange friend codes to visit each other's towns?

Let me know in the comments! Happy playing ;)
