The Plot Outline
Ok! So you just had a super intense brainwave and believe it would make a great story. You have the inspiration, the energy and the excitement and cant wait to go ahead and write it! Great!
Now STOP and back off from the pen paper or keyboard. Diving into your writing headfirst works for the very very few, what you need is a plot outline. Without a plot outline, writing a story is like building a house with no blueprints to follow. A plot outline is your blueprint, the skeleton to provide the basic support for everything going on in your novel.
Now making a plot outline is very easy, you just need to put the time in. The amount of detail you put into your outline does not matter, it can be detailed with full scene descriptions or just a couple of lines stating the basic route. As I said, it is the skeleton; the flesh can come later, most likely in your second draft. It is always best to make a minimum of two drafts of all your

A complete sentence has a subject that is described or acted upon. This means that it requires a noun and verb that interact. In the example I am about to show you, the incorrect version is divided into two separate sentences; the second is the incomplete one, or a sentence fragment.
Example of incomplete sentence: The clock had frozen. Which was okay with him, since he hated the ticking noise.

To put it in very simple terms, a clause is an independent part of a sentence. It has its own subject or sub-subject that relates to the main subject. Separate clauses are most commonly separated by commas. Introductory clauses require periods, too. The only time that an introductory clause can go without a period is if the sentence consists of six or fewer words, which is what const

When you absolutely, positively, HAVE to get the story done.
The trick to speed-writing is to Plan the story out first, more commonly known as PLOTTING.
"Diabolic" was written in 30 days -- all 15 chapters at 2500 to 3000 words per chapter, adding up to around 80k (thousand) words. A novel is 90k to 100k. I was able to do this because I already knew my main characters really well, (Vincent and Sephiroth of Final Fantasy VII,) and I knew where my story ENDED. Basically, once I knew where I wanted to go, all I had to do was figure out how to get there.
Note: If you're interested, DIABOLIC can be found at Media Miner. The 'Search' feature is your friend!
The plot outline I used only had 5 points:
1. Beginning - The Main Character gets involved with the Villain or Lover.
2. Complications - The situation worsens.
3. Emotional Turning Point - Panic Attack! Fear and/or Guilt vs. Desperation
4. Reversal - The wor

Step 1: Plot Planning
Make a sort of timeline for your whole story.
-Draw a line across a paper
-Start the first entry at the very beginning, but write tiny and sideways, so there is room for every event on your timeline.
-This timeline gives general ideas of what will happen in the story.
-Now go back and mark the events of bigger importance and/or indicates a time skip/flashback in the story.
-This organizes my thoughts of where to begin and end a chapter.
Step 2: Chapter Planning
Write out the specific events of the chapter you are about to write.
-Get a piece of notebook paper and write bullet point after bullet point of happenings in this chapter.
-Try not to put it in complete sentences, unless you have a quick idea or dialogue you don't want to forget.
-You don't have to skip lines every time you start a new bullet point. This wastes space on the notebook paper, and I myself just squish al
