My wife was disappointed. Yet again.

We had planned for a Ted-Lasso marathon, and despite my best efforts, I couldn’t make time. We kept postponing it.

The culprit?

I was taking way too much time to write my next article.

My writing kept going in different directions. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to convey. I found my writing going in one direction… and yet, the next minute it had gone off towards an entirely new topic.

And that’s when I visited my old friend – Outlining.

Whenever I skip outlining, writing becomes a mess. Outlining is the police officer that keeps my writing in check. This saves me time and a hell lot of frustration.

Now, if you will excuse me, wifey is waiting.
