Synopsis

Acclaim for Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success

“Not into outlining? Then someone did not demonstrate it for you the way Weiland has in her book. If you can make a quick trip grocery list, you can outline your next manuscript to benefit your process, using Weiland’s guide.”—Leslie Hultgren

“…this is one of the few writing craft books I have read start to finish, was easy to apply to my writing immediately, and helped me follow through on my first draft.”—F. Colley

“Ms. Weiland presents a wonderful roadmap for writing while still encouraging you to take those sidetrips that will make your story better. I feel like I can walk the ‘high wire’ of my imagination because I have the safety net of my outline below it all.”—D. Hargan

More Praise for Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success

“…this book has revolutionized the way I think about plotting and outlining and, after months of wishing I could find the ‘joy of writing’ again, I finally have it.”—Ashley March
