This is a workbook. It's a tool to assist in writing a novel outline. This is my method, which I've used to plot out my novels. What you'll find here are a few tips, but at core this is a book you write in. I created it so I could keep my outlines in one place rather than on sheets of paper here, there, and everywhere. There are lined pages to jot down information about your characters and settings. There are lined pages to work out your three acts. I use those pages to work out themes, subplots, counterpoints, foreshadowing, etc. If something happens at the end of the book that needs set up in the first part, I can do that with a sentence so I know where to place that scene. The bulk of the book is made up of worksheets to "beat-out" the story. I think of it like a step outline. I note the location, time of day, and the characters, then jot a few sentences about what happens in that scene, why it's important, how it moves the story forward, what it reveals about the characters, and the overall goal so I don't waste the reader's time. It also saves me time because I know why I'm writing that scene, which means it serves a purpose and isn't likely to be cut later. This is something I put together for myself, but as it might prove useful to others, I'm making it available to you. I hope it helps.

Looking for methods to make planning and outlining your novel easier? First time trying to outline or plan? For first-timers, outlining and plotting can seem scary. For those of us who prefer to write with no outline for one reason or another, the idea of planning is horrifying. But writing with no clear outline or goal isn't the best way to go, and it often leads to more rewriting and plot holes that need to be fixed, so it pays off to do a little bit of planning ahead of time. But not all of us are keen on developing lists of scenes that go over every minute detail of the book. For many of us, that actually kills all desire to write. It doesn't have to be that difficult, though. From Idea to Reality will help you to go through the process from start to finish, focusing only on the most important aspects of planning that both planners and pantsers can benefit from. Learn to develop your story starting from giving your imagination free reign to fine-tuning the idea in a one-page summary. When you're finished, you will be able to outline the story in a way that gives you the bare bones of the story, ensures that the story will work, and develop the summary required for most submissions to agents or publishers after the story is completed. This Saner Writing Methods guide will allow both plotters and pantsers to make sure a story works before writing it and feel comfortable thanks to having room for the imagination as well as a sound foundation to do further planning if desired. When you're done you will have developed the following for your story: A one-sentence summary A one-paragraph summary A one-page summary (Usually required by publishers and agents) Character Charts Character Voices Timelines (Optional step for the plotters among us) So what are you waiting for?

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!"

Go from Idea to Outline-And Finish Your Draft Without Freaking Out When writing''s going well, it can be immensely satisfying, not to mention lucrative. But, all too often, this isn''t the case. In the beginning, sure. Enthralled by your story idea, you write tons of material. Your word count grows in leaps and bounds. But the deeper you get into your screenplay or novel, the more difficult writing it becomes. The words no longer flow freely; they trickle out. Panicked, you stare at your computer screen, wondering, What happens next? You have no idea. You''ve run out of steam. You''re stuck. You end up with a half-finished draft. Thousands of words that go nowhere. After a few cycles of this, you may question whether you''re even cut out for this writing gig, after all. Don''t lose faith! The problem isn''t with you. It''s with your method. Here''s one solution: outline your screenplay or novel before writing it. With such an outline in hand, you won''t get stranded. You''ll know where your story is headed; you won''t have to decide where to take it. You can navigate blank pages without panicking. With this writing skills guide, you''ll learn how to quickly produce such an outline. A 3-part process, it looks like this: Make Sure Your Story Idea Isn''t a Time-Sink When you get a seemingly great story idea, you probably like to "run with it." Here''s the thing: not all ideas are worth the time it takes to outline them, let alone write a first draft based on them. No matter whether you''re a "plotter" or a "pantser," you should develop your story idea first, so it has the 6 components all compelling stories share. This way, you can maximize its potential, making sure it has enough substance to sustain a full-length film or novel-and enough appeal to attract an audience to read (or watch) it. Build Your Story Structure Even a great idea can collapse if it doesn''t have solid structure to support it. Basically, when well executed, story structure ensures your screenplay or novel becomes progressively more interesting as it goes along. In addition, because you''ve figured out structural signposts in advance, you won''t be traversing "in the dark," for very long. You''ll always have a bearing to head toward, a destination just around the corner. Hence, you''re unlikely to become so discouraged that you abandon your project altogether. But if you want to boost your confidence and enhance your efficiency, then you''ll want to- Outline Your Story with a Method Backed by Scientific Research (Sort Of) Here, you''ll learn about a radical new outlining method that will help you plot out your entire story in as little as 2 hours. It incorporates a simple technique Stanford researchers have concluded can make you 60% more creative (on average). A Sampling of What You Will Accomplish with This Step-By-Step Writing Guide your protagonist''s goal will have the attributes necessary to prevent audience attention from drifting away you''ll make your story idea more ironic, and hence, more commercial using a simple template, you''ll produce a one-sentence summary of your story (which will help you write and market it) you''ll figure out your first-act break and inciting incident in 10 minutes (probably less) you''ll crack the middle of your story (including the midpoint and the end of Act Two), so that writing it will be less of a stress-fest you''ll take measures to prevent your screenplay or novel from wimping out during the climax you will have a list of all the plot points in your story, ultimately enabling you to write a better story, faster (no fancy software required) Buy this writing guide today, learn how to outline your story effectively, and say good-bye to panic!
