I am trying to write my first book. I have no problem writing the story and have a perfect idea of where the characters are going and what happens to them. I make sure all the character archs feed my theme, as well. I gave read a lot about outlining character and plot points. I have written a 'scene' outline, or all the things I will be showing the reader throughout the story. I have never used an outline when writing, and am curious how best to use them. I have heard of the snowflake method, but I am so uninitiated, you might as well say 'peanut butter' method.
