Before reading this book, I had read another book on outling and found it difficult to follow and understand. Having followed K.M. Weiland‘s blogs for some time now, I decided to give this book a read. I found it refreshing and informative and easy to follow. The book gives outlining a sense of ease I didn’t find in the other book. The most interesting aspect of the book was the different view points from different authors on the the subject of Outlining a novel. I found this very helpful in working on my own outlining process. All the writers gave their pros and cons, pitfalls and advantages for the process. Every aspiring writer can learn from this book, and I recommend this book, giving it 5 Stars.
Taking a little vacation time and thought this would be an interesting read. So far it is!
