Everything I Know About Outlining I Learned from Elizabeth George
Mystery writer Elizabeth George came to speak at my MFA one year. She was super nice and then she said something in her lecture like, “Writing is a joy. I don’t know why everyone says it’s so hard.”
After we had patiently waited out the moment where we wanted to put her in stocks, she clarified: George, writer of the Detective Lynley series, is an inveterate outliner.
