Outlines and Writing

“Outlines are the blueprints of your story.” Terry Brooks, Sometimes the Magic Works

I read Mr. Brooks’ aforementioned book on his method of writing and that quote stands out to me. Outlines have always been dreaded monsters that had to be defeated in school. However blueprints make sense, you have to know what your story is constructed of and how certain pieces fit together. Unless its NaNoWriMo, I started with nothing but a fuzzy idea and a name. 

I won’t say since reading Mr. Brooks’s tome of writing has turned me into a grand writing wizard., (I wish.) There are no shortcuts to writing and we all know the struggles. But it has certainly given me things to look for and apply in my own writing. 

Now on to figuring out to blueprint MEI, maybe I will finally get it finished. Cheers, james
