I say pros because there are zero cons to using an outline when writing. Even if it’s a short story, an outline can’t possibly hurt you. I don’t mean those strict, roman numeral followed by a certain number of spaces outlines that your fifth grade English teacher made you use. I’m talking about your own personal outline that fits your personal writing style.
I am a big fan of Nook, so I’m giving away some free copies of A Story of River to my fellow Nook enthusiasts. All you have to do is click the link below and choose at least one of the three entry options. Winners will be gifted a copy of my book through Barnes & Noble. Good luck!
There is a lot of information out there regarding self publishing that illustrates the pros and cons. I won’t focus too much on all of that, since it’s readily available. Instead, I will focus on the reasons why I personally chose to self-publish. I’m not here to bash traditional publishers or those who have gone the traditional route. I chose to be an indie author, and I’d like to explain why I came to that decision.
