7 Steps to Creating a Flexible Outline for Any Story | WritersDigest.com | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it
Mention the word outline in a room full of writers, and you’re sure to ignite a firestorm of passionate debate. Writers either love outlines, or they hate them. We either find them liberating, or we can’t stand how confining they are. Let’s take a look at how to get the most out of the outlining process, beginning with the shaping of your premise and working all the way through to a complete list of scenes.

Viking Fisk Klubb Odin. Moro, brorskap, og filantropi. Mange Takk!

Viking Fisk Klubb Odin.  Moro, brorskap, og filantropi. Mange Takk! | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it
James Nelson-Lucas's insight:

Saturday, March 8th, the Vikings of the Norwegian Fish Fish Club Odin (for which I am the resident Storyteller) will be gathering to usher in the new year of the Norse calendar. The month of Odin. As always there will be fine food, entertainments, good fellowship, and of course Akvavit. Newcomers are welcome, and you don't even need to be Scandinavian to enjoy the party. This will be their last meeting before they storm Legoland on April 27th at the MS Walk Carlsbad. Each year a group of stalwart Vikings walk to raise money and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I won't be there as I will be at the Mariposa Storytelling Festival. So I want to thank all my fellow Vikings for their fidelity in my personal battle with MS. Mange Takk! If you want to help these valiant warriors fight MS, join the movement in person, or virtually:

CLUES TO MS FOUND IN SANFORD-BURNHAM STUDY | JSM Reasearch | Scoop.it
A thank you to Dr. Barbara Ranscht, Gülsen Çolakog, and the folks at Sanford-Burnham. The were very gracious in giving us a tour of their La Jolla labs this afternoon. It was fascinating, and encouraging to see these scientists at work. It is a good thing to see where donations to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are used. And, I believe it must be rewarding for a researcher to meet the people whose lives they effect.  The MS walk at Legoland is just 'round the corner My team of stout and hardy Vikings welcome walkers to join in their party. Either in person, or in spirit, you can join the movement: http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?team_id=362655&fr_id=23500&pg=teamScientists at La Jolla’s Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have found a possible explanation for the loss of nerve function caused by multiple sclerosis and similar neurodegenerative diseases. The research provides a new approach to finding potential therapies.
