Outlinz Wift Collr

Musashi Sez:

Wen yu writs stuff that is verree, verree long—lik a whole payj or mor—it kin be diffrcult to remembrer whut yu’r goin to writ at the end. So yu has to writ it down befor yu forgets. This called a “outlin” but it not mayk sens, cuz if yu kin writ it down, yu dint fergit, rigt?

Mom sez that outlinz don’t hav to be detayld, an yu dosn’t eeven hav to writ egzaktlee. Yu kin drawr piktchurz, lik wift crayonz.

She sez that Mistr Wil Shaykspeer problee yoozd outlinz, cuz all his playz hav 5 parts borkd into bits wift numbrz, an mos of his pomz has 14 linz. An lotsa peeples lov his writin, so probabul outlinz arnt so stoopid aftr all. Huh.

I don't know whether Keats outlined but he did write drafts. Multiple drafts. With cross-outs.
