My First Book Outline

Hi, everyone!

        I'm currently taking a novel writing class, and it's finally getting my ass in gear to write one of the few books I've been tinkering with for ages now. We recently had an assignment to make an outline for our book (we have to complete three chapters by the end of the semester) and also a character outline. Well, when the teacher gave me back these he made the comments that there's not enough conflict or strong connection, but that I have a lot of material to work with. So I thought I'd post my book outline here, because, after all, once it's completed you guys will be my audience. The book I'm writing is more of a simple drama, something that people can relate to. I'm not trying to write something epic like the Lord of the Rings or a suspense novel. I'm trying to write something that a teenager, a mom, a 20 something, just anyone can pick up and see a little bit of themselves in it.

       I'll give you a small background …


“We have reached the status of relationship goals.
The kind where we can have sex and eat pizza all day.
Just each other’s company is all we need.
The kind of goals where we text “I miss you” moments after a goodbye.
Where we can cuddle and be vulnerable.
We understand our silences as much as our words.
The kind where we can cry one minute and laugh the next.
Knowing our limits and our quirks.
A relationship where honesty rules all.
And support for each other is what matters most.
Lifting each other up so that we’re better than yesterday.
A partnership where you bare your heart and I bare mine.
The nakedness of our love.
The kind of relationship where we are a unit.
No you and I, but we.
They don’t make them like this anymore.
Just two unique beings on this journey of togetherness.
Our love is rare love.
Because of you I am lucky.
A cliché of sorts, but truth overall.
I can see you making me the luckiest girl in the world for the rest of our lives.
I say “our” because I imagine car…
