Why Outlining Is Writing
from Writer's Digest
One of the most common questions I am asked, and one of the most perplexing, is: How much time do I spend writing each day? I always try to be polite and circumspect when answering, but it is hard not to reply with another question: How do you define “writing?” I have an image in my mind of some modernist or other — let’s say Hemingway — arising in the morning, putting a sheet of bond paper into his Smith Corona, then writing English prose for the next few hours. Pretty, elliptical sentences drawn from his own life.
