7. Outlines

Outlines are a necessary part of writing. Period. Outlines are like a road map. They give you direction; they tell you where to go. Working without an outline is like trying to get from Oregon to New York and only knowing you need to go east.  This chapter provides helpful tips for creating a road map for technical reports and other documents.
