A Step-by-step Guide for Anyone to Learn How to Write a Novel


This is an Outline of all my current articles, and a look at what is to come. I will try to update it, at least once every two weeks. Also note that just because something is absent from the Outline does not mean I don't plan to write it. This is a compilation of only chapters that have already been written.
(You'll notice that I have neglected some points and chapters within this Outline. This this is simply a result of realizing that there is so much to learn, when it comes to writing. Don't worry, I'll be sure to come back and fill in the gaps. Also, if this list inspires any requested topics that you would like me to address, please feel free to suggest them in the comments section.)

Chapter 4 “Preparing Your Plot” – Section 1 “The Outline”

-Caroline Lawrence
Of all of the topics to discuss in writing a novel, none of them inspire quite so much ire as that of outlining your story. As artists, we sometimes want to believe in the concept of absolute freedom from form and convention, and that our achievements come from personal brilliance, total creativity, and ingenuity. However, when we consider how visual artists are critiqued when audience-appreciation for their piece is diminished by a lack of shading, poor color selection, bad perspective, or any

Chapter 6 “Plot Points” – Section 2 “The Inciting Incident”
“The inciting incident is how you get (characters) to do something. It's the doorway through which they can't return, you know. The story takes care of the rest.”
-Donald Miller  
Once you have completed your Beginning plot-point, in which your establish the beginnings of your plot, world, and characters, your next one will be the Inciting Incident. The Inciting Incident is the point of the story at which your protagonist's world is completely changed—the balance of their life thrown off in order to create a forward momentum that will cause the story to roll forward until the end
