The Half Giantess Bones and Chapter index

These are the details or bones of this story and could form the basis of a storyboard. How do you remember these stories I’m often asked. Well, I have the Bones of each detail in my head, each one has its own picture like a storyboard, I simply describe what’s in the picture and link them all together. In this sense a picture is worth a thousand words.

The cast of characters and the geography of the story are also in each picture. Characters, setting (geography), and narrative make up each picture on the storyboard. Of course, it helps if you understand the story or at least come to your own understanding of the story your telling.
