Or, why I don’t use them.
- An outline tends to be far too linear for the way my brain works.
- They annoy me.
- They feel way too much like work. Writing has to flow–work doesn’t flow.
- The one time I wrote a true outline it changed twenty times in a day and I ripped the page in frustration.
- I have nothing pithy to say about outlines.
Do you use an outline?
