Regardless if your writing consists of an outline or fly by the seat of your pants, structure is a must in writing plot, characters, dialogue and more. However, when someone says, “outline” to me I’m immediately thrown back into grade school hell with roman numerals! In fact, I think it has scarred me for life!
I’ve pondered the idea for a while, and my fellow writers and readers have talked to me about writing a full-length novel based on “Tears in the Sun”. But, when I’m writing about deep issues such as mental illness I have a tendency to get overwhelmed on where to start. I have the opening figured out, but what next? Then my mind begins to spiral with What if? What if? What if? So, I spent eight dollars to help get my thoughts organized and build a story. I did not say outline, just organized. The best part, it’s a clear and simple workbook. I highly recommend it.
K.M. Weiland, who I’m a fan of, is fantastic at explaining and simplifying the craft of writing. You can purchase it on Amazon.
Until Next Time…
