My word choice of “push” will now haunt me for all my days. They do beat outlining into you since middle school. I’m in grad school right now and I still write papers by mostly winging them unless the professor requires a prelim outline. My outlines are usually like “intro, background, issues, solutions, risks, conclusion” quickly scribbled into a notebook.
The women in my immediate family are similar sizes and we like similar styles so it makes keeping track of what clothes belongs to whom a nightmare. And strangers sometimes feel the need to point out we dress alike. Thank goodness they do or otherwise we would never have known! 😛
I hate writing papers so I do the bare minimum but I feel that something like a book should require more care and planning.
So, what I’d quibble here is that “care” and “planning” aren’t equivalent. That’s the part that bothers me, that we tend to equate planning with quality.
LOL! We’ll both let go of “push” and but it behind us 🙂
Isn’t it great to have strangers to point this stuff out??? :-/
Anytime I had to do an outline in school, I would write the thing first, and then “outline” it. Absolutely despised it being required.
