How To Outline A Short Story - For Beginners

To celebrate National Short Story Day in the UK, we thought we would post this outlining tool for beginner writers. This day is chosen because 21 December is the shortest day in the Northern Hemisphere.

Short Story Day Africa is celebrated on 21 June, the shortest day in the Southern Hemisphere.
