Build an outstanding outline every time!

Fool Proof Outline can help anyone quickly go from idea to first draft. How?

  • By elaborating parts of a story that matter most to you and your readers
  • By offering an organizational system that keeps your head clutter-free
  • By taking the fear and frustration out of writing

Fool Proof Outline is filled with just the right amount of brainstorming prompts, both challenging you to engage readers emotionally and propelling your novel toward completion. Character, plot, and scene questionnaires are also included to keep you focused one step at a time.

Even the most seasoned writer will appreciate Fool Proof Outline, yet it offers an ease-of-use that will benefit writers of every level.

Here's the link to the Fool Proof Outline in both Scrivener and Excel: 

If you've been considering Scrivener, this is a wonderful place to start!

You'll also get access to the Fool Proof Outline's online site, where you can ask questions and share your success. No registration necessary.

The Fool Proof Outline is the result of an incredible evolution far beyond my earlier outline template, The Ultimate Novel Template. Those familiar with that early version will shout with joy at the improvements. I do!

good content if you can look past painful narrator

very good tools especially for first time writers, yet it has, hands down, the worst ever performance. Snob wouldn't even cut it. I had to buy the digital printed version, it was that bad.

Another good find.

Not bad I say to me , lot of informative information to feed my thought process as I strongly continue my studies of the craft and art to being a hummm? halfway decent writer, telling and sharing entertain clear storys of my own.
Another good find.
