Why Outline?

Many of our authors work from their outlines.  The creation of the outline is of great help to them.  Some write without an outline.  What do you do?

•Outlines are blueprints
•Move the story from convoluted new idea to finished product
•As detailed as you want:
–Bones: basic structure guideline
–Major plot points
–Other key components
–Random details or dialog
Okay, but how will that help you write 80,000 words?
•Provides a guideline
•Sets daily goals
•Saves time
–You know what to write next & where you stopped last
•Eliminate plot holes & underdeveloped plot arcs
•Creates a quick visual overview
•Keeps you writing
