Episode 6: Getting started writing a novel, Part 3–Outlining!


Links to Parts 1 and 2 in this Get Started Writing a Novel series:

The Passing Bells Trilogy is by Phillip Rock; I’m currently reading Book 2: Circles of Time

Harry Potter is an example of third person close (at least in the first few books)

A bit more on point of view: third person omniscient vs. third person limited (which I call “close”) from Nathan Bransford

Something about Finding Lucy, the manuscript I’m revising, is here.

J.K. Rowling is an outliner; here are her outlines (so pretty!)

George R.R. Martin is a pantser. I hunted far and wide for the video I mentioned (i.e. Googled it approximately 10 times), which was just a tiny little clip to begin with. Does anyone know where it is? Share in the comments and make me look slightly more legit.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is by Rebecca Skloot

Stephen King’s On Writing

Do you outline? Do you improvise? Please share in the comments!
