It's your way or the highway!
Literally, this is one of the times when it really is all about you. If you try to do it the way someone else tells you, or the way you think it should be done when really it isn't the way you do it, your likelihood of your success greatly diminishes.
Think about your kitchen. I'm sure you have everything organized just how it will work most efficiently for you. The pots, pans, skillets, and spices are probably near the stove, the silverware may be near the plates and cups which may be by the dishwasher. You get my point. Now say you read a magazine article that says the plates should always be by the closest door. The pots need to be as high as possible and northwest. The silverware should be stored underneath the oven. I'm sure you'll get very, very frustrated with that arrangement because it's just not how you operate. Organization for your WIP is exactly the same. You can try it any way that anyone says it, but in the end, it really must be your way.
I know this from experience. You name it, I've attempted it. The snowflake method....check. Standard outline....check. Plot line...check. Writing the synopsis/query paragraphs/basic idea of each chapter/chunk....check. None of those worked for me, but as your probably know, writing a novel without any organization is life's greatest adventure. It comes with a guarantee of chaos.
The thing is, I really stink at organization and if the pic below is any example, it's because of my brain. Yes, thinker, I'm blaming you. (Don't get me wrong, Brain, I'm quite satisfied with the way you operate. It's others that think your a bit off...hey! Don't kill the messenger, Brain!!)
