To Outline or Not to Outline?
When you visit the grocery store, do you go with list in hand and methodically check off each item as you add it to your shopping cart? Or do you breeze in and simply cruise through the aisles grabbing whatever you think you need? Personally, I prefer the breeze-cruise-and-grab method, but I know I do a much better job of shopping if I go in with a plan. Writing, too, is easier if you have a plan or outline before you begin.
