If you are a writer, and unless you’ve been kidnapped by a gang of monkeys and hidden deep in the Amazon, you know that November is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo challenges you to write 50K words in a month. 1667 words per day. No problem, right?
There are preppers and pantsers, and both types believe they have their novel well in hand—at least for the first few days. But as you dig deeper into the flesh of your story, but it’s nearly inevitable the doubts will creep up zombie-like. And you wonder, “Brains. Where are my brains?”
Even if you despise outlining, give it a shot. A few hours of outlining with save days of beating your head on your laptop. Trust the woman that writes novels for a living on a deadline. An outline will give you a clearer idea of where your characters are heading and make it easier for the words to flow.
But I won’t leave you on the Shores of Outlining Your Novel without resources. I developed a FREE one-sheet outlining tool that asks essential questions to de-angst your novel writing. This is my gift to you and all you need to do is click on the link below to get the download link.
