‘Take off your pants!’ Outline
This plan is based on the method described by Libbie Hawker in ‘Take Off Your Pants!: Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing’. It starts with a character flaw, and leads to 5 points that make up your ‘Story Core.’
The plan created here can be used to guide your novel, but Libbie’s book also describes pacing and constructing scenes. We recommend reading the book to make full use of this method.
