There are many ways to create a plot outline for your novel.
“Outlines can be:
- 50-page detailed plans
- A reworking of The Hero’s Journey
- A simple series of index cards with a list of characters, major scenes and sequels
- Structured timelines
- A series of character questionnaires showing development, motivations, flaws and strengths
- Story maps
- One-page chapter-by-chapter outlines
- One-page synopses“
