To Outline or Not to Outline?

By Tova Mirvis

I had no idea where I was going. It was my third novel, and I’d started it as I had my prior two, with a few ideas but no clear plan. I worked for months on plot lines I later excised, spent years inching toward a first draft.  I was writing a multiple perspective novel and had so many different trajectories that I felt like I was running a day care filled with unruly children.
