Writing a Novel- Outline Mobile App

The Writing a Novel - Outline mobile app is the easy way to create story outlines for a novel or script. Whether you already know where the story is going to go or are starting from scratch with a few brainstorming ideas, it's critical to have a plot outline when writing something new. Story outlines, often referred to as text trees, help you break down the process of writing into smaller chunks so that it's easier to digest. With the novel outline app, creating an outline is as easy as opening the app on your smartphone or tablet. Simply generate a new story outline based on your main idea, and add notes or short phrases that cover the main plot points and topic outlines that can guide the writing process.

Instead of diving headfirst into the writing process or relying on post-it notes for your topic outlines, use the app to generate a new outline for your short story, multi-act play or longer novel. The app can be customized to include your notes, can be used to create a plot diagram to help you devise the story structure, and helps with citing scholarly sources. No matter if you want a formal outline or something that is more casual, you can save time and get more done during each writing session by creating an outline that guides every step of the way.
