When I begin outlining a novel (this sounds like I've outlined many novels. In fact, I've outlined only two novels, which have gone through various revisions) I begin with the assumption that the average number of chapters for a novel is 15. So I write out the events of my novel...and then group them into 15 chapters.
It's a strange thing to share, but I'm not tired, it's 12:30, and I can sleep in tomorrow. So now you know how I begin a novel. Begin one yourself. It's fun!
We (Angie and Sarah) are twin sisters who are currently attending college. We have numerous passions including art (Sarah’s a painter and drawer and Angie loves to photograph), writing (future novelists? Hopefully!), and of course jewelry-making.
