It’s been a busy day with running around and taking care of family business, though I took a moment to finish the first draft of my fiction outline planner. It’s something that I use to help map out some of my fiction. It’s rough at best, but the more I use it, the more I find myself tweaking it to make it better. I gathered the information from around the internet, taking what I thought applied and adding it all together in one document. It’s easy enough to use, though it may not fit every writing scenario. I uploaded it as a standard Rich Text File (rtf) to my divShare account, so feel free to try it out. Any word processor can read the document, but in case you find yourself having issues, leave a comment and I will see if I can help fix the problem.
Feel free to continue to build upon the FOP. I would like to see someone take it further than I have. I am sure there are some areas I missed, so that’s where you can help. Writing can be a solitary journey. I don’t know about you, but I take comfort in knowing that I am a member of a larger community. And it is within that community I hope to give back all that has been given to me. I think the FOP is a start.
Anyone interested in taking the FOP for a spin can download it from divShare here. (Link opens in new window) Any suggestions on how to improve the template are always welcomed.
