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 twist and turn 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 story.
Jennie Nash has designed an outlining method that writers from both camps can love. It’s called the Two-Tier Story Outline. It’s a simple and easy-to-use tool with a very clear goal: In a short space, tie the external, plot-based events of your story to the internal, emotion-based truths that inform it.
Join Jennie as she teaches a class on the Two-Tier Outline. You'll learn how to weave the internal and external narratives of your story together so that your readers are hooked from start to finish. The clear, concise roadmap 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 fiction.
