Personally, I like to outline plots. I'll come up with what I think is an interesting idea for a book, write a rough 2k-5k outline on it, hitting all the important points. I'll usually come up with general ideas of characters, a paragraph or so long descriptions. While regular writing can be a bit tedious and draining, writing an outline is rejuvenating for me, which is probably why I have almost 100 of them stored away. So my question is, what parts of writing do ya'll enjoy or find yourself doing more than necessary?
