I am currently creating my first fantasy novel. I am new to writing. I would like to be able to begin writing soon. However I am running into some issues. I am having issues with creating a plot outline. I know the over all story line of the book, however I am having issues when it comes to the very detailed parts of the journey. The book is going to be about a group of 6 characters living in a fantasy world, wanting to escape the lives they have been forced to live. They are traveling to the one place that is said to be free. I am creating this journey for these 6 characters and not sure how to make a good timeline. I am very detailed and a bit obsessive when it comes to things like this. What is the best way to create a timeline. Should I create a map and have all the cities listed out on the map and just chart their journey? Should I just start writing and see how it goes? Also I have plans to make more than one book and make this a series. Should I go ahead and plan the entire story out to ensure consistency? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
