Outlining your novel doesn't have to be hard. But when was the last time you sat down to write with the confidence and true belief that you knew exactly what story you were going to tell? Where do you start your first novel? If you're like I was, you started writing with no idea where your story was headed. Believe me, two books and almost 500,000 words into that "process" I had to stop and re-evaluate my strategy. Now, before I commit the time and energy to pen a 90,000 word novel, I make a map. I wrote these Nine Day Novel books after I realized how difficult it was for new fiction authors to plot, write, edit and publish their first novel. This book is a roadmap to get you beyond the theory and into the practicality of putting words on the page in the right order. Being a commited newbie author isn't easy Some scoffed at me when I said you can write a novel in nine days. Then I sat down and did it ... 4 times. Now, literally thousands have read my book on writing, describing how to carve out time and write faster by using story structure, and the second book, on how to streamline the fiction editing process with Scrivener. But I made a mistake with those first two books!Plenty of you emailed me and told me as much. "Steve, shouldn't you have started with outlining? How am I supposed to write 90,000 words of a story when I have no clue where it's headed?" Though I detailed the Four Part Story Structure inside NDN: Writing, the point was taken-outlining and plotting your novel is a difficult task that deserves a more in-depth discussion. In Nine Day Novel: Outlining I'll detail: - Why you should outline your novel - How to generate ideas and inspiration for your novel - Whether you should weave your own story into your first novel - How to turn your ideas into high concept stories - The top ten novel themes and popular variations of them - How to keep track of settings, vocabulary and characters - How and why you should create multiple summaries for your novel Don't write another book by the seat of your pants. I'll show you a step-by-step, milestone-oriented way to ensure that your hero has a worthy journey before you write the opening line of your novel. I promise you that if you follow the outlining tips, examples and structure in this book, your next novel will get planned and plotted better than it would have otherwise. You'll feel more confident in your story before you start and experience less "writer's block" trying to figure out where to take your hero next. And as always I'll do all of that inside my favorite storytelling structure, the Four Part Story Structure. And, since it's hard for me to imagine writing more efficiently without it, I'll introduce you to my favorite writing software, Scrivener! "The bonuses (for the series) are more than worth the price of the books!" Bonus writing tools like: - Four Part Story Structure starter file as a fill-in-the-blanks Scrivener file. - Editing videos detailing how I self-edit before working with editors right inside Scrivener. - And for this book, a beat-by-beat example outline for Dixxon-Teen Witch, a novella that I'm co-authoring with a newbie fiction writer, outlining it beforehand using this very book. (Also as a Scrivener starter file.) But the real world, real writing advice in these books has helped hundreds re-energize their writing and rekindle their love for storytelling by giving them the tools to write with confidence. All you have to do to get those same results is to read this book. If you're struggling to outline your novel, scroll up and click "BUY NOW!"

At once a love letter to literature and a charming guide to the books most worth reading, A Reader's Book of Days features bite-size accounts of events in the lives of great authors for every day of the year. Here is Marcel Proust starting In Search of Lost Time and Virginia Woolf scribbling in the margin of her own writing, "Is it nonsense, or is it brilliance?"

A Reader's Book of Days is filled with memorable and surprising tales from the lives and works of Martin Amis, Jane Austen, James Baldwin, Roberto Bolano, the Brontë sisters, Junot Díaz, Philip K. Dick, Charles Dickens, Joan Didion, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Keats, Hilary Mantel, Haruki Murakami, Flannery O’Connor, Orhan Pamuk, George Plimpton, Marilynne Robinson, W. G.

Brimming with nearly 2,000 stories, A Reader's Book of Days will have readers of every stripe reaching for their favorite books and discovering new ones.
