James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Outline it.

Posted on | June 29, 2013 | No Comments

The best advice I can ever give my students is to outline, everything.

If you are writing a paper, storyboarding, planning a conference or just bringing an idea to life you need a map.


Sounds simple but too few people actually spend any time figuring out where all the pieces are going to fit.

In the end the details will fall into place but you need to know what the place is.

I found this on mental_floss, a great little site, an example of an outline by JK Rowlings.

If an out line works for Rowlings it can work for you and me.



Simple, old school and effective!
