Writing Novels

This is my method and order for writing a novel, as well as some tools and resources. It's all theoretical, though. I have yet to actually finish a novel.

Brainstorm (Week 1)

Outline (Weeks 2 - 4)

Writing (Months 2 - 12)

First Draft (Month 2 - 8)

Second Draft (Months 9 - 11)

Third Draft (Month 12+)

Publishing (???)

Tools and Resources

I currently use Scivener for planning, writing, and editing. But I'm considering switching over to using plaintext with markdown for future projects.
