A great technique for writing proposals, papers, or books -- as I do a lot -- is to storyboard the ideas.

My favorite expression: "If you can't draw it, you can't write it!"

Here's Einstein on the same idea:
I rarely think in words at all. A thought comes and I may try to express it in words afterwards
If you're not a storyboard person, check out this website for insight...


  1. Thanks for the link. I've used wireframes in past web development projects to lay out a form of storyboards so as to visualize the sequence of events for a series of use cases. I've found this technique much more useful to map requirements to implementation than your usual functional spec docs.

  2. Don: thanks for the comment on your experience. I share your sentiments. John

  3. The link that you shared was helpful. though i must admit that I need more practice with making storyboards because my work sucks. My kids even think so. Not good, not good at all.
