In the outline thread, the thought was put out that outlines stifle creativity. So, I thought creating an outline used creativity, so I didn't see the difference between being creative while writing versus building an outline. I don't want to turn this thread into another outline thread. I was wondering what creativity means to different people. Is it coming up with a plot and characters? Is it how well you can write prose? Is it just writing and then finding out what you created?
