This outlining thing is working out quite well for me. All the hard choices, or most of them, have already been worked out. I know what will happen, how people will react and what they will do. All that’s left is fleshing out the details, which is much easier knowing where I’m going.
In testament to that, I’ve just started chapter eight of the sequel to Dragonlinked. I have had to do some minor tweaking–the manuscript often evolves as you write. People do things you didn’t expect, or threads don’t work as initially conceived, or you get an idea on how better to accomplish something. But for the most part, things have been working well. Here’s hoping it continues that way.
