Vonnegut Editing Tool May Be Useful for Online Stories

Editing Tools for Web Editors

To celebrate National Novel Editing Month, Media Bistro’s GalleyCat reprinted a writing tool that novelist Kurt Vonnegut introduced during a New York City lecture. If you as a web editor work with fiction writers, the Vonnegut Story Grid may be a helpful tool for plotting a story. This article also leads to a blog by Derek Sivers, who reproduced a series of story grids by Vonnegut.

What other kinds of tools do you use to work with writers for editing stories? How might you use this one?
