Writing without an outline

Read an interesting article by Steven James as guest blogger on Brian Kerns Editor blog for Writer's Digest: "6 Secrets of Writing a Novel Without an Outline." I found it fascinating and vindicating as that is how I also write. I even commented on the blog (something I never do!)

If you, too, write without an outline, you will also find it interesting. You can read it here:

  1. At Crime Bake a number of the published authors there spoke about having an outline for their stories. They seemed almost unanimous in using outlines. So I am going to try outlining on my next project, especially as I have decided it will be a mystery. I think that in the case of a mystery, outlining must be necessary - you need to know who the victim is, who the suspects are, what the clues will be and, of course, who will be the perpetrator of the crime. So I'll give it a try.
