As you flesh out your outline, act like you're writing a synopsis of your book. Do not (I repeat, do not) try to come up with the "right words." You know what I mean; those perfect, thesaurus-approved words that can take half an hour to unearth from the far-reaches of your brain. Instead, use the most banal words possible. Such as: In the next chapter, Susan goes to the grocery store and she sees her ex-boyfriend. They have an awkward yet stimulating conversation. Some good one-liners (to be determined). But that night, while she's warming up a TV dinner at home, Susan feels like everything is seriously crap with her life. Nothing wrong with these individual words per se, but clearly it's not an actual page in any decent novel. But that's okay. Keep on adding. After awhile, your outline will stop looking like an outline and will seem more like...well, a really long, really detailed synopsis. Let's call it a condensed draft.
