The outline is not the story. It’s not even the plot. An outline should be kind of the table of contents of the story. The outline should be used as a guide, a map of sorts for the story, and that is not the case for me. What I did was to wrote the story itself in an outline, and then tried to make a story out of it again, a second time.
An outline as a table of contents; best definition of a fiction outline ever.
