NaNo Update: Step 4 – Expanded Summary Paragraph

Continuing The Snowflake Method on my unnamed NaNo novel. Summary: Marcus, a Roman soldier, gives up his sword and attempts to convert after witnessing the death of Christ.

Step Four: Take several hours and expand each

sentence of your summary paragraph into a full

paragraph. All but the last paragraph should end

in a disaster. The final paragraph should tell how

the book ends.


Not all of my paragraphs focus on a disaster. I’m still thinking about those, but I believe I have caught the general gist of the idea. I’ve gone ahead and done this exercise for the paragraphs I came up with for both of my main characters, Marcus and Gaius.
