Btw, 90k words in 5-6 weeks is pretty impressive ;), I’ve actually never met a “pure” outliner before, what’s your method?

Missed this. xD Yeah, well, I didn’t really have much else going on, so I did lots of writing. Honesty though, I still write quite slow. I had gotten up to nearly 1k word an hour, but now I feel like I’m back down to 6-7 hundred. I’m not a pure outliner, not even close actually. In fact, my sister (also a writer) says that my outlines are not near deep enough. xD To give you the jist of how I did my outline, I first made character profiles (which is absolutely essential in my opinion, but pantsers may do as they please), then I made a chapter by chapter outline. I did a few more in depth outlines as well, and organized it all on paper using the three act story structure (loosely), but I’m mostly just using the chapter by chapter outline and the character profiles. Do you outline?
