Outlining

Confession time: I have, and more than likely always will be, a horrible outliner. High school, college, graduate school…if the teacher wanted an outline, and provided what they wanted in the paper, I would literally just bullet point what was provided.

With that being said, I’ve hit a wall with my novel. It’s like my brain has just shut down and can’t think up anything else new. So, I have embarked on the ride of trying to outline.

I googled ‘how to outline a novel’ and stumbled across this site:

And this:

So, if you wouldn’t mind, wish me luck. Here we go on the road to outlining…and it actually works!
