Writing Tips

One of my favorite parts of the writing process is outlining and brainstorming what’s going to happen in my novel. Sadly, this can also be one of the most difficult parts of the process, because there’s no one-size-fits-all formula for figuring out every scene in our book.

Today, I’ve got a detailed video for you on the most effective method I’ve found to work through my own plotting and outlining. If you want to create an outline for your own story and want some good tips, head to ​YouTube to watch today’s video​.

Hi, I'm Sarra!

I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
