The 5 Mindset Shifts You Need to Make Right Now to Achieve a Fully Developed Plot Outline

  1. You don't have to start at the beginning.
  2. Plot is the story element that ties character and conflict together.
  3. The simplest plot structure creates the best framework for your novel.
  4. You don't need to know every single detail before you begin.
  5. Watching movies is the fastest way to study story.

"Before I signed up, I had only a thought of maybe writing a middle grade novel. NOW I have a title, characters, and direction for sub-plots."

- Sylvia Howell

"At first, the running references bothered me because I don’t run. But after using them in my outline, I found they work really well. Very clear to use."

- Sharon Wilson, Author of four nonfiction books for children


is the only course of its kind that...


  • No filler, no fluff, no unnecessary busy work. Just plenty of examples to help you understand the concept so that you can model your own plot in the same way.


  • The 5 main plot points are the jumping off points that will begin the framework for your novel. The Marathon Method of Plotting helps fill in the blanks so you know how to get from one point to the next.


  • Since Plot Like A Novelist is an implementation program, you WILL be creating each phase of your novel as you go through the course. When you're finished, you'll be ready to actually start writing your novel.

"Because of my new plot outline, I was finally able to finish a rough draft of my memoir during NaNoWriMo."

- John Henning, Retired technical writer

"I was able to validate the plot in my current novel, as well as solidify the outline for the sequel. I highly recommend this course for both beginners and advanced writers."

- Karen Brueggeman, Author of Fruzzles
