Specific, down to the last detail outlining is really not for everyone.

I agree that we all have some sort of idea of conflict, motivation and resolution before we start, but other than than a really fuzzy beginning and a really fuzzy ending, I'm most comfortable of letting the story write itself with the small exception if I'm working on a detective type story. As much as I hate outlining, I need to force myself to work one up for the clues to make sense and be interesting enough. But for anything else? I'm at the mercy of my characters.
