Story Board

I hope someone can help me with this one.
Tomorrow early morning I have a love story to film.
I already chose the music and when ever I listen to the music I have images running in my head.
I would like to take all those images and put them on a piece of paper just like a story board .
I rather see images on a piece of paper the writing description of what i am going to do.
Any suggestion of how to make a storyboard with the images that running in my head?

just draw what you see in your head with written description

some things you may want to add on the description:

SHOT (CU/MS/WS/ECU) (TRACK LEFT, IN, ...)
ACTION (throwing ball, feeding bird)
TALENT (bride, groom, mother of bride)
PROPS (ball, birds)
DESC (Annie walks to the right, then he met Adam and smile because....)

just make it very simple for you...

I like to use the photo function on my little handycam to make storyboards in Powerpoint. I find it very good for solving production problems ahead of time. Plus it cuts down on the time needed to develop the rough cut. I especially like being able to quickly re-arrange shots to try out different ideas and also make production notes to nail the lighting, outfits, makeup, angles etc.

I end up writing a script for the images I had in my head.
Next time I will use a story board software since i am ether not good with drawing.
Thanks for all of you.

I just draw squares on a piece of paper so it kind of resembles a comic strip. My drawing is terrible. I just draw quick stick figures and some items need a label. It's just so you can remember all the shots, so I don't feel u have to spend forever on detail. Just enough to help u remember camera angle and positioning of people/ things that u had in your head so you can film them all.
