outlining, take two

Wrote a plot skeleton sort of outline, because my plot had a mystery in it and those generally don't work just plunging through the outline one scene after another.

And am now turning it into a proper outline to ensure that I've actually got a story in hand and it's not going to surprise me with a major structural lack.

And am confirming that the snowflake method, where you start with a one-line summary of the story and embellish it in many stages (second is a four line summary) is definitely not for me.  This is trouble enough.
