How to write a book: fiction novel outline templates
I spent 10 years in a library getting a PhD in Literature, and still didn't know how to write a novel. But after editing a few hundred books and writing a dozen of my own, I've created clear and simple resources for outlining commercial fiction that is better than anything else available. I hope you think so too.
Whether you're a pantser or a plotter; whether your first rough draft is finished or you haven't even started; this guide to plotting and story architecture will drastically improve your novel's pacing, create more intrigue, and keep readers engaging. Ultimately, you'll end up with a much more satisfying book - which means better reviews, and more sales.
FEEDBACK ON MY PLOTTING RESOURCES:
"I've been listening to this non-stop. Dude has done his research on story structure."
"Finally implementing your structure into the beats of my story. I really think you're on to something here. You can literally immediately visualize hundreds of movies you know (that worked) based on when certain beats happen."
"I have been looking for a plot structure like this for a long time! It helped me to complete a system that I'm so happy with. Thanks so much!"
"This has been so helpful! You don't understand what this means to me. If anyone ever asks me how I managed to write three full POV stories at once in the same book, I'll credit Derek Murphy."
"Man this right here helped me a ton yo. It cut out most of all the nonsense that the other outlines be giving."
"When I put my story ideas into other outlines they seem to leave me still feeling lost, and confused with what should happen in certain chapters. But this one? I was able to connect the dots from beginning to the complete end. I had to study it for a week straight before I finally was able to really understand how to use this story structure completely."
"Thank you so much for creating this story outline. Me being able to really complete a story blueprint makes me feel so happy right now."
