If any of you are friends with me on Facebook, you know that I'm much too excited about Nano Wrimo much too early! But that's beside the point. Since I already have an idea I'm really excited about (you can read about that if you want at my new history blog writeplushistory.blogspot.com) I thought I might as well start my outline.
Well, long story short, I'm actually a "pantser." (by the seat of the pants writer!) My outlines are usually at most 8-10 bulleted points. I find though, that with the pressure of NaNo WriMo, I might appreciate a better thought out outline. So my question is: what outlining methods do you guys use and why do you like them?

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
