Tip O'Day for Authors #152

Guest blogger William Simon on outlining your story.
Always try and have a clear view of where your story is going. Nothing is more frustrating than getting to the halfway point, and having it all come apart. That's happened to everyone, but it's never easy to deal with. A one page outline can help the writer a lot.

Dixon says: I’ve had suggestions of writing a chapter-by-chapter outline before starting on a book, or even a detailed synopsis. I like Mr. Simon's advice since it gives you direction while allowing some wiggle-room for when one of your characters grabs the storyline and goes scurrying off in an unexpected direction.
