Much as I hate “how to write” books that are not “Hi, I, an author you really like, will muse about how I go about things,” because I am actually a point where I can’t progress without outlining I reluctantly picked up a book about outlining novels. It’s not bad, though I find myself skipping large sections that are more about figuring out your characters’ motivations and so forth rather than outlining as such. Sadly, I’m not finding the Save the Cat! method, which is great for screenwriting mainstream films, to work well for novels.
How about you?
