Sample text

Lots of writers dismiss the need for an outline with the argument that they do the same thing in their heads. So why bother to write it down? But those of us who do this for a living know that magic doesn't happen until we actually force fingers onto keys and make words appear on paper or computer screens. New ideas flood our brains, and points we never considered suddenly appear to us. The discipline of writing itself imposes order and sense in a way that never happens so long as we review the material in our heads.
