I'm using this method to pre-write my book, and it feels like a TON of extra work. I'm on step 9 (approximately 50 pages of narrative description of the plot) at this juncture. But I can already tell that all of this will make the process of writing the first draft a lot smoother, and the editing should be easier as well.
I love the show "Frasier". There's something strangely comforting about two successful psychiatrists who constantly make a mess of their own personal lives. The show emphasizes the fact that no one is perfect, no matter what their profession. I think its awesome that Kelsey Grammer is a producer for the show "Girlfriends". It's such a funny show, and their problems are so much more relatable than those of the "Sex and the City" girls!
