Ask a question

Are you looking for a good guide for writing a fiction novel? This is a simple fiction novel outline template that will take you through the main sections of a common novel format. Designed for a novice who has some idea of the character arc and understands a little about story development.

It will take you through the main components that make up a story. In some of the sections, I have provided instructions on what you might add to that section of the outline.

The Word version of this template is editable. I have provided two snipits to give you a general idea of the format but It is actually ten pages long (8x11") with clear headings. The outline is in a clean and simple Word table format with space to add your comments in each section. Just click on a blank line under each heading and start writing.

It is made to outline a fiction novel but it could be used for a novel based on a real story, NOT suitable for a reference or how-to book.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A DIGITAL DOWNLAOD. Nothing will be mailed. You will will receive a link to download the document after purchase.

You will also get a PDF version that is not setup to be editable. Purchase this for personal use only.
