any novelists like to start with an outline. This doesn't have to be as scary as it might sound.

Remember how we just talked about developing your idea so that your character's struggling with a problem or trying to reach a goal?

Brainstorm a list of actions your character might take to try to overcome the problem and reach his/her goal. What new problems or obstacles might arise? What might your character do then? All of these are the possible scenes for your Urdu novels.

Make a list. Then play with your list, ordering the possible scenes, removing ones that don't seem to fit, and adding new ones to fill the gaps. VoilĂ  -- you have a novel outline!

The outline doesn't have to be in any special format. It's just for you.

Other authors prefer to work without an outline and dive straight into the writing. That's fine too. As I've said, there's no right or wrong approach.

Should you outline or not? It's not a life-or-death decision either way.

If you start without an outline and feel lost, you can stop and brainstorm some scene ideas to keep you going. You can go back and outline at any point in the writing process.

On the other hand, if you begin with an outline, you're not stuck with it. When new ideas occur to you, you can explore them. You can update the outline if you want or leave it behind.
