How to Create a Crime and Mystery OUTLINE

Your outline makes a strong emotional connection with your readers and serves as a road map for how to get them to their destination in the safest and most reliable manner. Your outline creates a structure for your research, characters, and plot that will enable you to finish your project more quickly without sacrificing creativity.

Many authors have writer’s block and lose their sense of direction. Regardless of their genre, by using outlines, an author can spot any dead-end ideas and issues before they become annoying and embarrassing plot holes. This is because outlines help you identify your protagonist/hero character and the problems or conflicts they must face.

In this lesson, you will learn how to create a Crime & Mystery Novel by using the 3 Act Outline technique.
