Generally with my ideas I try to break it down into pieces and see if the ideas can make sense or stay stable enough. :hmm:

Though most will have their own unique ways in crafting and shaping their stories.

When it comes to me writing down the fundamentals I usually go character by character. So what I mean is write down everything that happens with that character then move on to the next, and the same. Obviously some characters will be appear in the same scenarios, so I mention that in my notes.

I do this because it helps me understand my character more, such as their background, motives, personal feelings and so on.

Then after all this I make a separate list of all the 'off page' events that happen. So for instance when characters mention particular events or when I describe particular events that none of my characters appear in.
