I'm not talking about writing a 100k, or even 30k, book in one day. I'm talking about maybe 5-10k words of an outline at most, something that shows the causes and effects of all the events. I feel that if one really knows their story that this should be easy. But then why isn't it? I truly believe that it's possible that if you just sit down and write, that you can churn out an entire outline of your story in just a few hours. But I've only been able to do this once and it was years ago and it was the same story but now the story has changed so much and I'm finding it difficult to write an outline like that again but I want to and just don't know or something.
