Are you a "pantser" or a "plotter"? Do you love outlining, or does it leave you running for the hills?
Some writers love to outline their entire book, because they believe they have to map out every point and argument in order to write a coherent whole. Other writers hate outlining, because they believe it robs them of their creativity and they would rather write their way to an understanding of their book.
Jennie Nash has designed an outlining method that writers from both camps can love. It’s called the Outcome Outline. It’s a simple and easy-to-use tool with a very clear goal: In a short space, tie each point or argument of your book to the takeaways (outcomes) that you want your reader to come away with.
The course will teach you the Cornerstone Questions for deciding on the best structure for your book, the Outcome Outline, and the One-Page Book Summary, a succinct snapshot of your entire book that allows you to see the whole thing in one glance. You'll learn how to weave the point and outcome threads of your book together so that your readers are hooked from start to finish. These clear, concise roadmaps you'll create will help you get to "the end" faster, with a book that is solid from cover to cover. This class is applicable to those writing prescriptive nonfiction. (Writing memoir or narrative nonfiction? Check out The Inside Outline – this class's fiction equivalent.)
The class uses three powerful tools to nail down the foundation of your story, developed by founder Jennie Nash and tested on hundreds of writers.
Solve all the problems in your book before you write another word.
