Are you a pantser or a plotter?
A “pantser” is a writer who prefers to write without previous planning. They write by the seat of their pants and discover the story as they write. A “plotter” creates an outline beforehand to act a road map for their novel. No matter which kind of writer you are, making an outline can help you pull up your pants and point the way forward. An outline makes it easier to keep track of chapters, change focus if necessary, and establish a theme.
– Learn the essential elements for a novel outline.
– Create an outline using index cards (cards will be provided).
– Explore various types of outlines to determine which works best for each writer.
