It feels strange to be working from an outline but that's what I did tonight; makes one feel very much in command. But I'm having to whip myself to create the outline. A huge problem is that the primary antagonist in the story is the protagonist. One is supposed to devise multiple scenes where the antagonist and protagonist butt heads, in a carefully graduated crescendo, but but but but I can't. Maybe a solution will come to me tomorrow. I look forward to working with Joe the Conqueror on Screenplay 2, Intent to Kill. First step will be a plausibility check on each scene. It's gotta be real baby. It's gotta be as real as that saliva that's in your mouth all the time that you never notice but it's there.
