Darned baby steps

Quick post this time, so no lengthy write-up about my trials and tribulations.  Just the meat of the issue.

Started a spanking new outline today.  Slightly different than the previous one, but more or less still similar.

I’ve thought about writing it all out in prose form, but realize that would result in a lot more tangents and lack of focus.  Which I don’t need right now, so instead it’s 1-2 sentences about each scene.

I also find I’m revisiting those old chestnuts of “What’s the conflict in this scene?  Does it move the story forward?  Does it adequately showcase the theme?”  Yes, a pain in the ass now, but will be totally worth it later.

I think for now I’ll be happy if I can get close to where I reached last time, and then see how far past that I can go.
