Plot Outline Writing

What is it?

A detailed outline organized by 3 Act Structure that maps out the story arc, character development, romance, central plot, stakes, and conflict.

Why is it necessary?

Plotting is often the hardest part of the writing process; outsourcing it allows writers to focus on the quality of their writing, rather creating a world from scratch. 

Who is the service for?

-Publishers working with ghostwriters who might not have romance genre experience.

-Indie authors who are feeling creatively exhausted and want to write, but don't have the energy to craft detailed outlines.

-Newbie authors who haven't written a novel before but are looking to break into the romance market.
