In the past I would start writing without an outline. Then, a couple times, I've done that, then sort of stood back and asked what I might like to do, then start outlining based on that. Then, I tried outlining story which I didn't realize was different from plot. Now, I think outlining plot is pretty important before getting to work. I only write short stories right now though so that's a thing. How do you outline your plot? Do you? Why or why not? What has been your evolutionary process as a writer in this regard?
