In six words, tell us: How do you outline?

Manuscript finished! Query letter to who?

I just trace the dead body.

(Sorry! I have a weird sense of humor. lol) 

Ten manuscripts, let my characters lead.

Go with the flow!

Pen to paper then type it up.

Lots of pain, but it works.

I have to handwrite first in a notebook.I do what I call the spider web method before anything else.I start out putting my main Idea in the middle draw a circle around it and add lines outside of it making a spider web or what looks like a sun. I put all my other thoughts on the lines around the spider web.After that I write out a structured beg, middle,end standard outline but written in ink not typed.I then after type it up and it all comes together from there.

Get image, close eyes and type.
