Carolyn McBride This book covers so much more than outlining, I think writers would find it useful even if they write flash fiction. (Which I do) This book talks about realistic and flawed characters, what makes them tick, beginnings, middles, endings...so much more than just outlining!
Erika Hayes I agree with Mike. This book and the workbook are great tools to help get creative in an outline. It helps to the juices and help one come to a great beginning, middle and conclusion. Addresses many potential issues and helps develop a more meaningful story-- I've used it many of the possible techniques shared on shorts too.
