The Verbal Storyboard Template

A verbal (not graphic, not pictorial or illustrated) storyboard can be created before a fiction novel is written. It can also be used as a technique for your first edit.

As you complete the Storyboard Template Form below for each scene that you have already written— missing details, unneeded scenes, and stagnant zones in your story will become obvious.

Plus, it’s fun!

Use this Verbal Storyboard Template to analyze any story.
