Manage episode 321779006 series 1652249
Welcome to the third instalment of my mini-series on how I outline a novel. For those of you who are unaware, in the first episode, I discuss how I go from fleshing out a story idea to a basic outline. In episode TAP035, which is the second instalment in this three-part mini-series on outlining, I focused n sharing the steps in my outlining process that help me create a structurally sound story with scenes that actively move the story forward. And in this episode, I will share more of those steps, plus a bunch of things that I add to my outline spreadsheet that are purely there to help me outline that I don't necessarily use while writing the first draft. If you haven't listened to episodes TAP034 and TAP035, I highly recommend you pause here and go back and listen to those shows.
About this Episode
This episode is not scripted because I want it to be a chat about how I outline a novel. In saying that, I have compiled a list of steps and broke down exactly how I outline a story. Each of these steps has a bullet point list of notes to help me stay on track. I'm sharing this with you so you know that I've thought about this episode in detail.
