Have you ever tried to arrange a night out with ten of your best friends but found it’s a nightmare trying to get them all together on the same night in the same place?

Me too!

If you’re an author then you have this challenge in your fiction as well as real life!

That’s why I asked Lewis Jorstad, Novel Smithy extraordinaire, to be a part of the upcoming book for writers, Launch Pad: The Countdown To Writing Your Book, and write a chapter on how to outline a novel for every kind of writer. Because hear me when I say this:

Plotters are not the only ones to outline. Even Pantsers need a degree of forward thinking!

Perhaps you’re a Puzzler who writes scenes as and when they hit you?

Can you really outline a novel if you’re a Pantser or a Puzzler?

The answer is yes, and Lewis shows you how to do it.

To give you a clue as to what you’ll learn, Lewis condensed his top ten tips for outlining into a handy, free, pdf download you can access here: https://dl.bookfunnel.com/guixy4jsd3
