[quote="mike m."]if you want to get published you will do an outline and related documents at some point why not do it first and save a tonne of work and rework[/quote]

Because it's much easier to write an outline or synopsis of something already written than for something you haven't done yet. I did it all the time in school. Takes no time at all because you already know every twist and turn. ;)

easier for you

but getting the story right in a skeleton form before filling in details is far easier for normal people who are not super genii

How much long is forum management going to permit ongoing derision and denigration such as committed by mike m?
Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

the only denigration is from you and ostrella making personal comments

you are the ones causing derision

focus on the top and stop dealing in ad hominens and personalities

A censor is, by definition, a government agent.

I'm not an agent of government. Hence, no censorship.

A credentialed nonfiction writer would know that.

that is your erroneous definition

censorship is stopping others from speaking freely
as in freedom of speech

you are a libtard and believe you can silence anyone you dont agree with
and if you cant then you make personal attacks again part of the saul alinsky libtard strategy

So, anyone who happens to disagree is a "liberal" according to you? Well, we now know where we stand with you.

No, actually, it's not. It's the dictionary definition.

Dictionary.com
Merriam-Webster
Oxford
Heritage.

Take your pick.

But a nonfiction writer would know this already.

there you go again being all confused

it is the way they disagree and make personal attacks and try to censor people they dont agree with
that is the go to core strategy of the libtards using the saul alinsky playbook
