- Add your script: under each rectangle, write the line of script or dialogue that corresponds to that scene.
- Sketch out an interesting story line: indicate movement with an arrow of basic figures. A bad drawing is better than no drawing! Alternatively, you may use existing images and paste them into the story.
- Add Notes to the story for players/readers: For each scene, you need to place some keynotes, a description of what’s happening, camera angles or movement, and any special effects. (including audio like music or sound effects). Background details will be useful to make sure the role is performed well by the actors.
