So, you've created an outline for your novel. And, now you're ready to start writing. Diving into writing the first draft seems like the first logical step. However, I recommend you slow down and edit the outline for your novel. I learned this lesson the hard way after publishing my first-in-series novella.To this day, I regret not going back and editing the outline for that novel. There were minor things that were not wrapped up at the end, that I believed wrapped up rather subtly, but the reader needed more clarity around. If I had edited the outline before starting to write the first draft, I would have fixed these issues before they were issues. By the time you get to the revision stage, it's difficult to see all the errors, especially if you're a new writer, and you don't have an established team of beta readers or a critique partner who is a little more seasoned than you.So stay tuned for all of this and much more.Podcasts, Books, and Tools MentionedCheck Out the Show Notes (https://authorpreneurpodcast.com/tap037/)TAP036, From Idea to Outline: How I Outline a Novel (Part 3) (https://authorpreneurpodcast.com/tap036/)TAP035, From Idea to Outline: How I Outline a Novel (Part 2) (https://authorpreneurpodcast.com/tap035/)TAP034, From Idea to Outline: How I Outline a Novel (https://authorpreneurpodcast.com/tap034/) (Part 1)Interested in the mini-course on how to outline a novel (https://authorpreneurpodcast.com/outline-a-novel/)?Am Writing Fiction Community by The Authorpreneur Podcast (Facebook Group) (https://www.facebook.com/groups/indieauthorpod)Support the show by buying me a coffee (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/authoradhay)Want the podcast straight to your inbox?
