How to Make a Story Planner in Apple Pages

Stories are, without a doubt, hard to come up with. They require a lot of details than you can imagine. Your writer's story will not end tragically because you can make your story planner now in Apple Pages by following the guide steps below.

1. Sketch a Story Itinerary

Story writing takes up a lot of inspiration, and for sure, before you put into writing the story, you already have an itinerary in mind. Right? Writers are creative people, and most ideas are formed through imaginations, cooking the plot really well, and then producing a remarkable story. That seems great, isn’t it? Come up with the story itinerary so you can begin, proceed, and finish your story. Sketch the whole story implementing the plan you made for the story. Use the itinerary as a guide for the rest of the things you need to accomplish for making your story whole.

2. Plot the Story Sequence

Draw the outline of the story following the story itinerary you made earlier. This will put your story scenes in order. The sequence of the story, together with the story itinerary, helps you call the shots during the filming, identifying if you still need to take a shot of the same scene. Name the scenes according to what takes place in those specific scenes. Or choose to name it by number to be more clear-cut with your sequence list. Arrange the scenes by its sequence flow and write alongside with it its supporting details to create a more coherent sequence.

3. Set the Character Details

A story wouldn’t be complete without the people representing the different roles who give life to the story. It would be great if you have organized an audition for this portion of your story planner, but if you have not yet, set a schedule for it as soon as possible. Auditions help you identify the person who is appropriate to portray the character in the story. Select actors and actresses that will fit fiction character roles, be a good deliverer of interactive stories, and the like. We all know how kids would love if their favorite cartoon characters are given very good voice over and how adults would love to follow a drama series whose characters bring out the right emotion needed for the scenes. As soon as all characters are set, fill out the character list with their details.

4. Congregate Everything in a Planner
