Part of my process is a detailed outline. As I write I am not completely tied to my outline but it give me the general direction I am going.

I use the writing tool Scrivener. It makes outlining easy. It uses 3x5 cards on a cork board as a method. It allows you to label chapters and provide a small description of the chapter or scene.

The Internet has a lot of examples of Plot Diagrams as well. These can be handy for doing a one page start to even give you a start on your outline.

As always, just do it. Make it a habit. Two hours a day and you will get  a lot done. But don't get stuck at the outlining step. Limit yourself by setting your own deadlines.

--Have fun with it...
