First Draft of My Outline

I recently completed the first draft of my outline a few days ago! I'm so relieved to get the whole outline of my novel down on paper. So so relieved!!! My first outline of course is a total mess and needs some serious attention. I plan to do two more drafts of the outline to get all thirty chapters completely organized. And only then I can continue writing out the first draft to my Fantasy novel. Yes!!

And for the record...I used to hate outlines with a passion, but now I'm starting to appreciate them for what they can do. This is obviously a really good way to help boost my career as a writer. I just need to remember to keep on having an open mind..never stay closed.


  1. Congrats! I know for me, outlines are a necessity except for short stories. My 2009 NaNoWriMo novel is still a disaster because I didn't use an outline. I'm seriously considering just scrapping it all together and starting over.

    I'm a fellow Campaigner in the Fantasy group, by the way, just stopping in to say hi!

  2. Very cool! Personally, I would hold onto it just for keep sake so you can have it as a reference if need be. But only refer to it if you absolutely need too. I've had stories like that myself where its just total garbage because I didn't make an outline. But I still have them because there's some ideas in it that I could use for my newer stories.

    Thankyou for coming by my blog! It's good to be part of the group.
