A Birthday

outlined and unhappy

It's hard to judge when an outline is done.  I've been bit by one-- hard -- where the story was like pulling nails.  Well, yeah, they can always turn to like pulling nails, but that I had not gotten the plot detailed enough in the outline to be clear was not a help.  Pulling nails on the earlier part was easier; I just felt uninspired.  The later -- not at all the same.  I needed inspiration for details.
