noob, as usual, you keep assuming that nonfiction methods have to be carried over to fiction writing for a writer to be successful. It’s a recurring theme of yours through your many reincarnations here – and it’s erroneous each and every time.

Other than the 1-2 attempts at writing fiction you have alluded to (again, in some of your past sojourns here), have you made any serious attempts at writing fiction? The last I heard, you were still in the planning/organizing/researching stage and had yet to actually write anything. You think your method of planning/outlining is best, but you don’t really know, do you? Because you haven’t tried to write yet. And if you have finally started this project, what progress have you made? Have you completed it? Sent it to any agents or publishers? Self-published?

There’s an old saying: Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach. You seem intent on teaching – even if you’re trying to teach geometry in a chemistry class.
