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!"

Novel Basics: An Illustrated Guide to Writing a Novel by Juliet KincaidLet longtime college writing instructor and novelist Dr. Juliet Kincaid talk you through her unique method of brainstorming a novel with twenty 3" by 5" index cards in the first part of Novel Basics, an Illustrated Guide to Writing a Novel. Once you've completed your personalized pack of cards, follow through on what you've started with Dr. J's expert guidance on time management, drafting a novel, and revising one as well. Altogether Novel Basics provides a compact, yet complete guide to writing a novel, whether it's your first, your fourth, or your fifteenth. Excerpt from Novel BasicsI know you're out there. I've met you in some way or another.Maybe you're the girl in an online group I belong to who wants to start your coming-of-age novel about growing up in the Ozarks amid the opioid crisis, but you don't quite know how to do that.You could be a short story writer intimidated by the sheer size of a novel.Or maybe you're the man I talked to at a local authors fair who always meant to get back to that novel you started twenty years ago, but now it sits hidden in a drawer at home.Perhaps you tried to write a 50,000-word novel during a National Novel Writing Month event, but you didn't make it all the way through. Or you did finish and now you have the diploma declaring you a NaNoWriMo winner, but you don't know what to do next. Let's say that you're the author of a brilliant, well-received first novel who can't get that sophomore effort together.Maybe you're like me. You have several completed novels in your file cabinet that you could never get an agent or publisher interested in, so you gave up on those projects. Possibly taking a little time to explore one of those will help you decide if it's worthwhile for you to go back to it . . .Maybe you don't quite fit into any of these slots I've mentioned, but still you're like the rest of us. You've got an idea sparked by that powerful question "What if?" that keeps bugging you, an itch you'd like to scratch at least a little bit . . .As for qualifications, Dr. J, as her students called her, has a huge experience with the novel. She has more read than 3,000 of them and counting. Her dissertation on fiction in diary form was labeled remarkably free of jargon. She has written more than a dozen novels and published five so far. Thirty-five years of experience teaching writing at the college level have honed her communication skills. The book Novel Basics is based in part on Dr. J's popular workshop of the same name. Here are two testimonials from former students of the course for Juliet's unusual approach to brainstorming a novel. "Novel Basics is the perfect kickstart for new novelists to prepare before writing the first line and continuing through the middle to the conclusion. Important story elements are presented in the logical, easy-to-follow order the writer should consider them. Experienced authors can also benefit from this new approach for their next projects." Mary-Lane Kamberg, award-winning professional writer, speaker, and editor and co-leader of the Kansas City Writers Group and founder and director of I Love to Write Camps for young writers. "Starting with a simple question ('Who wants what?'), this method offers writers a step-by-step guide to organizing and plotting a novel. Kincaid's approach helps writers think about critical points beforehand so the writing process will be smoother and more productive." Author Cheryl Brinkman Johnson
