We all know some writers are planners and some writers are pantsers, but when it comes to structuring a novel, there are vastly more choices than the simple question of how you get it done.
Multiple POVs. Different time periods. Nonlinear mysteries. There are so many different ways to piece it all together.
How did you go about choosing the structure for the novel?
Did you let it come to you? Did you use a plot framework? (And if so, which one?) Did you try out several and arrive at the one that worked best?
If you’re unsure or stuck, check out my recent post on How to outline a novel.
What did you do when you chose yours?
