I Finally Started My Novel

Well, kind of. A couple days ago when I downloaded the Dragon Anywhere app on my iPhone – which I’m using right now to write this blog post – I decided now was finally the time to start outlining my novel. What will it be about? I can’t say just yet. How long will it take to write? Who knows. All I know is that it won’t get done if it doesn’t get started. One of the things I’ve learned from the myriad of successful authors I’ve interviewed and befriended over the past several years is that outlining a book before you write it can be incredibly helpful. I’ll keep you posted on how my journey is progressing and any key milestones along the way.

    Bravo, Michael!
    And, smart move to outline, though you’ll help yourself by starting with a Logline and then a brief 1 or 2 page Synopsis. It’s all about the process of gining a solid grip on what your story is about. Check out my online course at Writers University: SELLING THE SIZZLE.

  3. Good luck writing your book! I’m sure it will be awesome! Love, Mommy

  4. Very inspiring. I’ve been researching chromebooks and have decided on the toshiba Chromebook 2 to be my device of choice to begin writing. I’m doing the outline on physical paper but the rough draft will be digital and saved across google drive, Dropbox and a usb drive.
