"Outline" doesn't have to be a dirty word.
While many writers love the structure of an outline to help them push through their novels in an organized, step-by-step manner, others get claustrophobic at the mere mention of the word. They’d rather write as they feel inspired, jumping from scene to scene and letting the characters take them through the story.
Both approaches are entirely valid. But what if neither feels right?
If you're like me, you're looking something in the middle. You need a little structure, but you want room to play, too.
Let me show you something.
This is the unique outline structure I use to stay focused without feeling confined, by recording the primary characters' objectives and tactics to track the key actions in each chapter or scene.
I'd like to share it with you for free.
