Let me guess: you have everything about the writing art pretty much mastered except one of the most important skills--infusing emotional impact in your writing. You enjoy seeing your characters change and grow, and you love the story you've created, but your beta readers or editor can't seem to feel much emotion for them. Been there, done that. We're in the same boat, so you're not alone.
Think: creativity on a whole new high - bursts of colorful imagery, radiant characters, and interesting dilemmas all thrown into a very short story! Then that twist ending, shining a light so bright, blinding your readers with awesomeness and, best of all, yourself....

Say it isn't so! You are coming to the end of your novel...DUN, dun, dunnnnn...and now you have no idea what to write or what to do. How are you going to wrap up those loose ends in time (before the deadline of your debut novel)?

What, oh what, can a serious writer do in order to get the job done?
Some writers like to draw from raw material, others like an outline. Even if you're not sure what you want yet, it's a bonus to read this book.

So the manuscript gets put away for months, sometimes even years all because they didn't have an outline.
