In Your Corner: The Art of the Outline (IV)

The last few weeks have been a lot of fun as we’ve covered some of the many popular outlining methods available to the author preparing to start a new project. We’ve covered a total of nine:

In a lot of ways, putting together and defining the various points on this list has felt a lot like the process of drafting my usual late-week blog post. Perhaps this is because my usual late-week blog post is the product of much planning, and planning for me often takes the form of–that’s right!–outlining. And researching. And organizing what I’ve researched into the most streamlined, most effective means of communicating possible. The product is, for me, a string of blog posts that say the most they can with as little ornamentation as possible.

I hope that at least one of the methods we’ve covered proves useful for you to try! Regardless of whether it proves useful as a great new addition to your toolbox or as part of the process of elimination in discovering what works for you. I’d love to hear about your experiences in trying one or all or any of the above methods! And next time I write, you can expect further thoughts on where to go from here–from the outlining desk to the drafting table.
