How to Write by the Seat of Your Pants: Outline or No?

Outlines are important! Take it from me. My first book, I decided that I wasn’t going to write one. Honestly, I felt like I could do better by just writing off of the top of my head. However, I quickly realized that I was so wrong. Let me just tell you that it’s so hard to keep up with physical attributes when you haven’t written down what your characters are supposed to look like. I would have my character with long hair at one point and short hair in another. That was annoying.

Not only that, but also, you have to know where you want your book to go from beginning to end. That way you have a point of reference. If you should forget something and you have written an in depth outline you don’t have to worry about a thing. You can always go back and read what you wrote long before you actually started writing your book. Learn from me. I didn’t do that but as I started to write my second book I did write one and I’m glad I did. I already can see that there are far fewer inconsistencies than with my first book.

Also, you’ll find that you won’t spend as much time staring at your screen because you have writers block. If you break your book outline up by beginning, middle and end, you will know where you need to go and you’ll be able to do it much easier than if you were just writing freestyle.


Michelle Marshall is a strong independent woman with a lot of baggage. Raped right before the start of her senior year of college, Michelle grows to be a caring, single mother to her daughter. Things begin to look pretty grim when the Charity House, the women's shelter she founded, is on the brink of having to close its doors. That is, until Tyler Austin, a mysterious and handsome stranger comes into the picture. Helping Michelle resuscitate the Charity House, Ty also helps her learn to trust, love and feel what she hasn't in years. Not everything is quite as perfect as Michelle would like though, as occasional hints lead her to believe something is not quite right. Her suspicions are confirmed when even more frightening developments occur and start to become...deadly.
