[process] Fun with outlines

I continue to leg-wrestle with the Endurance outline. 1,500 new words yesterday and a lot of thinking. As noted before, working on Sunspin and The Heart of the Beast has seriously rearranged my outlining process. It's a challenge, in the "growth opportunity" sense, not in the "stumbling block" sense.

I plan to be done with this by the weekend, because I need to revising Tourbillon next week. When I am done, I'll make a more detailed post about my experience of the process shifts and what I think it might mean. Mostly what it means, I hope, is a stronger book.
