Five Reasons You Should Outline

five reasons why you should outline

Outlining is time-consuming. If you do it in any depth, it’s pretty difficult … but is it worth it? Why not just skip the extra step completely and move on to the actual writing – that’s what you’re here for, after all, isn’t it?

In this post, I’ll be “outlining” (couldn’t resist) my top ten reasons why I think you should outline before you ever consider writing your book.

Now before we go any further, a disclaimer: this post is unashamedly pro-plotter. However, I do understand that pantsing works for some people very well. This post is about why you should outline … but if it doesn’t end up applying to you after you’ve done some experimenting, go and plot no more!

Are Novels Important?

Are Novels Important_

I’ve heard people say that reading fictional stories is a waste of time, and I wanted to point out why this is not true.

However, it was simply too big a subject for me! Books have taught me certain lessons … but they’ve taught other people completely different things. And I hate to narrow this broad subject down to just my opinions and experiences!

So, through Google Forms, I asked a variety of readers from social media the following questions: What does reading mean to you? How have novels helped you in your life? Why are they worth something to you?

Here are their responses.

Alice Unanswered? What’s that all about?

Alice Unanswered_ What's That All About_

What? I have a sudden and inexplicable desire to tell you about this book! I mean, people have been asking (oh, shush, they have *pretends I have fans* *doesn’t have fans*) about Alice Unanswered, and so here goes!

I actually do have a reason for posting this right now. I hit 25K with Alice Unanswered! Now, granted, I haven’t typed it all up yet … but knowing that I have 25K is very comforting. Even if I’m not sure of the exact number.

And so … yes, I am completing turning over my plans for this year in which I wasn’t going to start writing AlUn until April. Right now, this book is begging to be written … and who am I to refuse?

Writing About Children

What I've Learned from Writing About Children

Just the other day, I was scrolling through social media, and I saw a post mentioning that it’s very hard to write children. I skimmed past quickly. It’s not fun to be the only one not in pain.

Because … to me, writing children is not hard. In fact, it’s a lot easier than writing adults!* To me, children hold the true wisdom of the world. Love, faith, innocence, joy, simplicity … all the good things in life!

The world spoils them eventually (or rather sin nature? Honestly, I’m not sure, but it does happen), but until then …? Well, I say write about them as much as possible! How? Well, here are some Dos and Don’ts!

*this may be because I’m extremely immature I have a young heart.

How 2018 Will (Hopefully) Go

how 2018 will hopefully go

Hello Ladies and Gents! It’s finally time to list my goals for the New Year (as well as my January 2018 Dares). Are you as pumped for 2018 as I am?!

However, before we begin, I’d like to invite you to beta-read At Her Fingertips! I talked about this at the end of the last post and gave more details. You can sign up using this form. The signups will be open until mid-January though beta-reading will begin as soon as I rewrite one last scene! (So pretty soon!)

Also, sorry for this post being a little late! I’m sick, and I just haven’t been able to pull myself away from editing At Her Fingertips, to be honest. And I have a couple other projects I want to finish before the New Year, sooo … yep.

How 2017 Went

how 2017 went

Hey there! It’s almost 2018! *much excitement/confusion/anticipation* Can you believe it? I sure can’t. It seemed like only yesterday I was doing that stupid video about New Year’s Resolutions that was super boring.

By the way, ‘Remembrance Day’ is apparently sort of the British ‘Veteran’s Day.’ Which makes that one British book I read called Remembrance make more sense. I was like, “This is a great book, but I don’t see anyone remembering anything?” *is a goof* *is unashamed of that fact*

NOW … let it be known that I have a ton to say in the introduction so that whole paragraph about “remembrance” was in bad taste as now the rest of the introduction will have to be bumped past the original introduction. *has rules about the numbers of paragraphs in the introduction* *shrugs*
