So, if you have been wandering around these parts for any period of time, you probably know that I am a HUGE fan of outlining. HUGE. I outline everything– short stories, novels, essays, you name it.
I very frequently get asked about this process, and I’ve tried to explain, but…it’s sort of like your grandmother trying to explain how she makes her secret biscuit recipe. “Just throw in a little flour…oh, I don’t know how much, just till it feels right…what do you mean, you don’t know when it feels right? It just does.”
So, for next week’s liveshow, we’ll be outlining a novel together. I’ll have the premise and some ideas, and the chat will come up with everything to flesh the story out, and we’ll go through a mini version of the process complete with Scrivener, Post-Its, and legal pads.
Tuesday, May 22, 8:00pm EST. This chat might run a little longer than our usual hour, just warning you. CLICK to go to the Liveshow page!
