The Ten Day Outline is Here!
Before beginning any journey, you need a plan…
Writing a novel is no different. However, creating an outline that truly supports your novel isn’t the easiest task. Its needs to organize your scenes and characters, help you structure your story, and let you experiment with new ideas before you get thousands of words into your manuscript.
That’s where The Ten Day Outline comes in! Through a simple ten day challenge, this book guides you in creating an outline built to support every step of your writing journey and, along the way, it’ll help you form the foundation you need to write a novel you’re proud of.
What is The Ten Day Outline?
If you’ve been tuned into the newsletter over the last few months, you’ll know that I’ve talked about this book quite a bit. After six months of testing and iterating on this ten day process, I’m incredibly excited to say the book is finally ready to go out into the world!
The Ten Day Outline is a straightforward guide, but by the end of these ten days you’ll have everything you need to write an amazing novel.
Not only will it show you how to strengthen your inspiration, but also how to:
- Create scenes and characters.
- Weave story structure into your idea.
- Mentally and physically prepare for your first draft.
- And build an outline that’ll be intuitive to use while writing your novel.
The entire challenge was designed to build up to more complex elements of storytelling slowly as well, making it easy for beginners and more advanced writers alike.
If you’re up to the challenge, I feel confident the The Ten Day Outline will become a regular part of your writing routine!
Inside, you’ll learn how to:
- Strengthen the ideas you have and discover new ones, even when inspiration seems far away
- Expand your original idea into a fully fledged story
- Develop a fleshed-out cast of characters, without overwhelming yourself with complex formulas and “best-practices”
- Apply structure to your story in a way that honors and refines your original idea
- Bring it all together in a final Master Outline, designed to guide you through every stage of writing your novel

Thoughts on The Ten Day Outline is Here!
This seems to be the next step I need to take in writing my novel. I jumped into writing synopsis after synopsis and realized I had to take a step back and figure out what I was missing or else be doomed to scrap the idea in frustration.
I realized I was missing a concrete and flexible outline to base my drafts off of.
Everything thenovelsmithy.com has provided me so far has been a great resource and a life saver!
I don’t know what I would do without you guys
You’ve got this Glenn! Rooting for you to gain some clarity on your novel so you can start writing. 😁
Thanks for the chance to win a copy!
Oops – I forgot to say, the next story I plan to write is a historical fiction written from the three povs of the three main characters.
I have had the concept for a novel in my head since I was a teenager. Lots of loose ends, bits and pieces of unrelated information that I’m unable to connect. I’m 46 and the only thing missing is how to tie it all together with an outline that plots it all. I could use this like you wouldn’t believe!
That’s awesome to hear Joshua! You’re completely right, after years of turning a story over in your head an outline can be a lifesaver. I can’t wait to see how you bring your story together!
I am excited to learn about this 10 Day Outline. I get so far writing and then I hit a bump and stop. Maybe the outline will help. Thanks!
An outline could definitely help. I hope you’ll let us know how it goes for you Lisa!
I’ve been waiting for this for a while ever since you announced it on email thread! I even showed it to my boyfriend saying I can’t wait to get a copy!!
That’s great to hear Joanne, thank you so much! Definitely share your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to read it. 🙂
I’ve started my very first draft, but I have a long way to go. I will make my dream of writing a novel a reality!
Can’t wait to jump in and get started – this has come at just the right time!
Can’t wait to read it! Just what I need to get started.
I hope you enjoy it Gillian!
I have had the first 100 pages of The Rising sitting in my computer and the almost the whole book sitting in my head for the last six years. It is a historical novel based off the events and many of the characters in medieval Portugal. I hope an outline can help me organize my thoughts and writing a little better.
As a huge history fan, that sounds like a novel I’d love to read. I hope this outlining process helps you get your thoughts organized so you can continue writing, and hopefully share your finished story with us someday soon!
I Have always wanted to write about how hard it has been for me to try to live a life that is so different than the so called “Normal” people live and be excepted.
Ever since I was a child, but know I am in my fifty’s and was told by a prominent writing school things like that can’t really happen and I could never become a writer. She was an Opera star and traveled the world. I have not written much since.
I hope you begin writing again soon Shirley! No matter what others might say, anyone can become a writer with enough patience and hard work. 🙂
I plan to write a book that rivals the “A song if ice and fire” series!!
