Outline Development

Although many writers start books with a series of thoughts, loose notes, or even whole chapters (we call these latter folks “pantsers” because they’re writing by the seat of their pants), eventually, you’re going to need structure. You can write a blog post in one sitting, or an article. A book requires more than that. For nonfiction writers especially, I recommend beginning with an outline.

As I discuss in this blog post, an outline does not have to be like the Ten Commandments, set in stone. What it must do is give you a map through the book-writing process.

We’ll create a game plan for your book: discuss the Big Four Questions, consider possible sections/chapters, set up writing goals, and provide strategies to get you to the finish line.

All recommendations are made on an individual, no-obligation basis. Editing is contracted for separately (outline development is included in all coaching options except for the Temperature Check). Be sure your book meets the genre guidelines here.

Review Working with Alexandra here.

Alexandra and I worked together shaping the outline and putting together a strategy for starting my book. She was very professional, detailed and gave excellent advice as I began my literary journey. Alexandra is a wonderful guide when an author needs help getting started along the right path. I would recommend her services to anybody who needs expert counsel, direction and inspiration to achieve their goals in writing.
