I have the same experience with outlines, for each story I write I seem to do a more thorough outline than with the previous, mapping out major plot events and turning points to have something to move towards, but still leaving enough room for creativity, which seem to work for me. I like outlines, they help me keep writing and never (or almost) get stuck. (but when i do at least it's not because I'm not sure how to move on, it's more self confidence issues :) I think what you do sounds great, it really is a good help knowing at least in which direction the story is going.
