Do you get into writing and pouring your ideas out onto the page and hit a wall, unsure where your story should go next?
Do you have a great idea with a few scenes in mind, but can't picture how to get a full story together?
Do you have a few books you have started that sit on your computer unfinished?

You know the reasons to plot your novel and they all make sense, but you just can't seem to make that work for you.
But on the other hand writting "by the seat of your pants" isn't working either.

That was me until I discovered these four techniques that aren't fully plotting, but aren't pantser either.
I call them preplanning tools. These tools are something that can be used individually or in combination with the others.
They can be used before writing, during writing, or some can be used during edits.
It not only allows you to develop as much of a road map as feels good to you, but will help your ideas flow for your story.

This is a different approach rather than plotting. It is based on a combination of 8 plot points with key scenes all novels
will benefit from having. This method provides built-in aspects of pacing to keep from the dreaded sagging middle and some character development scenes in the process of loosely planning your novel.

This process is a hybrid between full plotting and "pantsing" that gives a modicum of a road map with complete flexibility to adjust on the fly.

Loved this class! Really instantly usable actions that have helped my pantsing brain shift oh-so-slightly to plotting. Instructor was fantastic, and even messaged and chatted with my privately when I hit a snag. Highly recommend!
