About this talk

Have you ever tried to write a novel with no plan in sight?

If so, I imagine the end result was disappointing. While your initial ideas may have been great, it didn't take long for your story to unravel before your eyes, grinding your progress to a painful halt... There was simply too much to keep track of all at once.

You see, from juggling plots and subplots, to crafting characters and fleshing out your worldbuilding, you have a lot to think about if you want to write a novel. So, how can you prepare yourself for such a daunting project?

Well, the answer is with an outline!

Over the next forty minutes, I'll teach you the basics of my personal outlining process, equipping you with everything you need to plan your novel with confidence. You'll learn to:

✓ Nurture your inspiration, even when your muse seems far away.

✓ Discover the most important elements of your novel’s plot.

✓ Create in-depth character profiles for your cast.

✓ Develop a deeper understanding of your story's world.

✓ And gather your ideas into a fully-fledged master outline.

By the time we're done, you'll have everything you need to create an outline of your own.

I can't wait to see you there!
