Description


Creative Writing

Need to hire 15 Freelancers

Young publishing company requires creative writer(s) to develop detailed “Plot Outlines” for three-book series in the following fiction genres:

- Action Thriller
- Sci-Fi Space Opera
- Urban Fantasy - Magic
- New Adult Cyberpunk
- Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic or Dystopic

Deliverable:

Freelancers chosen to develop detailed Plot Outlines in a particular category (genre) will have complete creative license to develop their best story. As mentioned, the intent is to develop outlines for a three-book series. The deliverable(s) are broken down in steps:

1) Step-one is ~1,000 word synopsis of book-one and a brief (~250 words or less) on book two and three. Upon approval;
2) Step-two is ~2,500 word detail including internal and external motivations for main characters, story summary, tropes (Major and Minor). Upon approval;
3) Step-three is ~5,000 words including 20-30 chapter titles with a short summary detailing what each chapter includes, inclusion of several story arcs between chapters and some overarching into sequential books. Upon approval;
4) Step-four is the completed detailed Plot Outline ~7,500-10,000 words with constructed major scenes and plot devices, story arcs extending to sequential books, developed protagonist/antagonist and supporting characters.

Each step is considered a milestone and will require submittal, communication, and release of funds. We reserve the right to stop work at any step/milestone for any reason. In that event, you will be paid current to that milestone.

Standard Budget is $350 for a complete ~7,500-10,000 word outline. Milestones are $40 for step-one (completed first milestone); $65 for step-two (completed second milestone); $100 for step-three (completed third milestone); and $145 for step-four (completed fourth milestone).

Assuming you complete the entire outline, we would like to reengage your service to continue on book-two. The process and steps will work the same. Upon successful completion, we would expect to engage your service for book-three.
