To Outline or Not to Outline?

Over at The Outfit, Brian Gruley discusses this most perennial of questions.

Take a look at what Brian says here

Me?  I just make it up as I go along.  I suppose that's a 'no outline' from me then ;)


  1. Uh . . . what do you mean 'outline?' Like, maybe, planning ahead a story before writing it? What a novel idea! (and no, I don't. Except for a very, very, very hazy idea as where the story should go).

  2. I don't think I could outline to save me life. I wish I could sometimes, you know, I get in these massive tangles with characters wanting to do this and do that and I'm left trying to sort out the mess and juggle plots and sub-plots and try to make sense of it all. Pretty much always works out though. And whilst it keeps on working out, I'll keep on keeping on :)
