Yesterday I wanted nothing to do with my novel, because it was gloriously sunny outside and the ice cream truck kept on tinkling past my house. Ice cream is not usually seductive, but on a day when the writing is tough, the siren call of that truck creeping by is entrancing. So I found myself outside on my front stoop, waiting for it to stop. While I was waiting, I pulled out my phone, idly checking all of my apps when I happened upon an interesting image. Apparently, it is an outline for J.K. Rowling’s “Order of the Phoenix.” You can check it (and several other) cool out outlines here.
Is it real? I’d like to believe it is. I wanted to share it with you, because it reminded me that all of the worthwhile stuff takes a lot of focus and determination. It’s in the little moments of thought, considering the details that makes the best things really good.
So what did I do? I went back to my desk and wrote.
What do you think about J.K. Rowling’s outline? Would you ever try outlining a book like this?
