Friday Free-for-All: Speak to Me of Outlining
Current Project: NMMNG
Status: Outlining (what else?)
Our Chapter's November Online Workshop is on the "W Plot" method of outlining (this looks like a fabulous offering!). And since Debbie, Piper, and I (and several others, I think) are all in the midst of outlining and plotting, I thought it might be a timely topic to discuss favorite methods, systems, and tricks for outlining. I'm interested in books you've read, workshops you've attended, and tricks you've learned. What works for you? What doesn't? What steps do you go through before you start drafting that first chapter? After you draft the first couple of chapters?
