Project Description

Your Fictional Universe Outline

Create an outline for your fictional universe or someone else’s.

Using the templates I provided in the Class Resources (Attached Files), start completing your fictional universe outline and share it on the Project Gallery when you complete it. It could be a screen capture from the Word document, or a photo if you choose to print it (Please, consider the environment). Also, you can share a link to Google Drive if you upload it there (Only make sure is not private).

Remember to ask yourself these five questions to complete the outline:

  • What's the problem (Origin)?
  • What are the locations (Settings)?
  • Who's in control (Bad guys)?
  • Who's controlled (Good guys)?
  • What are the rules?

One last thing...

Soon, I plan to include a small e-book with all the information from the videos and more tips. You will find it around here when it's completed.
