TAP037, How I Edit the Outline of a Novel Before Writing the First Draft

So you’ve created an outline for your novel, and now you’re ready to start writing. Diving into the first draft seems like the first logical step. First, however, I recommend you slow down and edit the outline of your novel. I learned this lesson the hard way after publishing my first-in-series novella.

TAP036, From Idea to Outline: How to Outline a Novel (Part 3 of 3)

In this episode, I discuss how I go from a story idea to a fleshed-out outline. I know this is obvious, but this is my process instead of ‘the way to outline a novel.’ As you can see from the title, this is the third and final instalment in a three-part mini-series on outlining a novel.

TAP035, From Idea to Outline: How to Outline a Novel, Part 2 of 3

Welcome to the second instalment of my three-part mini-series on how I outline a novel. For those of you who are unaware, I discuss how I go from fleshing out a story idea to a basic outline in the first episode. In this show, I share the steps in my outlining process that help me create a structurally sound story with scenes that actively move the story forward. If you haven’t listened to episode TAP034, I highly recommend you pause here and go back and listen to that. The steps in this show take my outlining process and push it to the limits of being a zero draft.

In this episode, I will discuss how I go from a story idea to a fleshed-out outline. I know this is obvious, but this is my process instead of ‘the way to outline a novel.’ This process has evolved since my very first novel. As I wrote the next story, more steps were added to my intricate outlining approach.
