I admit it, I used to hate outlining what I was going to write. Sometimes I still do.
The reason is that as we write we typically flow away from the outline even if it does give us some sense of where we are going and what we are trying to do. It’s that frustration of feeling like you put all that work into it for nothing when you finish the paper or the book and you think, “well, I didn’t even really use that!”
