  3. Best-Selling Author James Patterson on why outlining is important
    1. OUTLINE LIKE YOUR BOOK DEPENDS ON IT (BECAUSE IT DOES)
    2. I'm a fanatic about outlining. It's gonna make whatever you're writing better, you'll have fewer false starts, and you'll take a shorter amount of time. I write them over and over again. You read my outline and it's like reading a book; you really get the story, even though it's condensed. Each chapter will have about a paragraph devoted to it. But you're gonna get the scene, and you're gonna get the sense of what makes the scene work.
