How to Write a Chapter Book Outline
4, 7, 8, 16, 28 etc for writing a chapter outline only in RH area
For all my longer works ( the novels) I write chapteroutlines so I can have the pleasure of departing from themlater on. Actually, while I always do depart from them, writing a chapter outline is a great discipline for thinking outthe story and it also provides a road map or central skeleton you can come back to if you get lost. I often write theprologue or initial chapter first to get the impetus for the story going and then write the outline. Usually, I haveto write a revised chapter outline two or three times in thecourse of writing the whole book, but once again it doesfocus the mind on where the story is going and where you want it to go.
Not to say writing a chapter outline isn't a great first start
There may be many articles that try to explain how to write a complete outline. But just like a large math problem, if you break it down into smaller pieces, it's easier to understand and it's easier to write. I will now explain the "simplest" form of writing a chapter outline.
