I’ve been working on the Laura Horn outline for the past couple days, going on the Internet when I need information I don’t necessarily have (research is ongoing and done as needed). So far, I’ve written up to Chapter 40 of the outline. And let me tell you, it’s shaping up very well. A really great political thriller with spy themes. And Laura Horn herself? She’s getting the help she needs, slowly but surely.

It’s been a tough process just writing the outline. The many different things I have to research, plus planning out each scene to be the best as possible. Plus all the distractions that go on in my life, it’s been hard to write the outline.  But the fact that I’ve gotten this far, and that I’m probably going to get much farther by the time the day is done, is spurring me on. I might be finished by Thursday, Saturday at the latest.

I’m not sure how many chapters Laura Horn will end up being (more than Video Rage, anyway). I’m pretty sure that it won’t be Snake-length (100 chapters) but it’ll be a good length novel. And the way I’m feeling this story shape up, it’s going to be one hell of a story. One I can be definitely proud of.

  1. I like to outline, too. How long are your chapters?

    • Depends on the type of story I’m writing. Reborn City and it’s sequel, the chapters average around 10-20 pages. Snake and Laura Horn, the chapters are 3-10 pages usually. Like I said, depends on the sort of story I’m telling.
