|Outlining fun! Tips for moi, por favor?||Category: (general)|

I'm hoping the multilingual title will get people to open this diary, if only to
inform me that "moi" is French whereas "por favor" is Spanish.
So I've been working on an outline for my second novel, even though I'm still only
beginning the process of rewriting and editing my first book.
When I asked people which of two story ideas I should write as my next book, pretty
much everyone recommended the same one.
1) Many of those people only wanted that story if I changed everything about it, and
made the characters gay.
2) The one person who wanted the other story knows more about both ideas and my
writing than the others, so I trust her the most and
3) A big part of why a lot of people didn't support story number two was that it
didn't seem as developed as the other.
All of which led to my eventual decision to outline both of them in detail before
making a final decision. This seems very mature of me, until you realize I am
actually ignoring most of my friends feedback. (If you consider "make them gay
please!" feedback. Which I don't. So there you go.)
What I'm wondering, and this is the point of this entry, right here... <-- for
those who stopped reading
Does anyone have strategies for outlining?
My usual method takes a long time, you see, and since I have to outline two stories
instead of one I'd like to know if anyone could recommend a more efficient outlining
