Having described why developing an outline is important to me, another benefit has come up because of it. While writing subtopics and embellishing along with subsequent details, chapters have emerged.
Once these chapters have come into play, simply copy the text over into a separate word document. Make note on the outline that the applicable section has been transferred over into a separate chapter. Using colored backgrounds works fine for me.
Then, upon reading the new text document, something occurs in my mind. Wording for a chapter heading comes into play. How nice!
