Every author has a style of their own, but the end result is always the same: a title, a book cover with a blurb for the back and a completed manuscript pressed between the covers. Your outline will begin with varying degrees of plotting, planning followed by writing, reading, editing and rewriting and often times it might be reorganized again. And there is no right or wrong way of writing just so long as the story is complete and it reaches a satisfactory conclusion. But the most important part is research – to ensure that the story is realistic.
