Wow. I have just saved myself months of rewriting by plotting the clues for my thriller AHEAD OF TIME. I know, because I’ve done this in the past. Got carried away with an idea only to cut it out of the draft later because it was superfluous, which was always a royal pain. Restructuring the whole draft afterwards.
And now I solved it in a matter of minutes while plotting. Cut it out. Took two seconds. Wow.
