I've finished a rough outline/synopsis for my current WIP, but right now I'm unenthusiastic about it. The first problem is that I wonder if it's too saturated with fight scenes; I normally like action-packed Conan the Barbarian-type stories, but I fear that if I overdo the action, both I and my readers will tire of it. Secondly, writing according to an outline constrains me, especially since I've created a whole world for my story and want to explore more of it than my current outline allows. The third major reason is that the only person I know who has reviewed my current outline is my mother, and as much as I love her, I don't trust someone who loves me back to objectively evaluate my creative output. I would ask someone else I didn't know that well personally to review my outline except that I don't know if outlines can be reviewed the way excerpts from actual stories can. I've heard more than once that it's how you write the story that matters, not the initial ideas behind it, which has given me the impression that outlines cannot be reviewed. If that's indeed the case, what should I do?
