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 Inside 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.

The Inside Outline will provide you with a clear, concise roadmap that will help you get to "the end" faster, with a book that is solid from cover to cover.
