AQATWA: When the seat of one's pants crashes into an outline

Only managed to write for a couple of hours this week, and that was mostly trying to work my way through the same plot complication I've been struggling with for the last two weeks. The scheme is full of plot holes and I haven't worked them out because I've been just trying to write through it with an idea of where I'm going but not how I will get there. That's not going to work for this particular twist - it needs to be worked out in a tightly planned fashion. Which means outlining. Hopefully will get around to that this week. Right now the idea in my head is kind of like "And then Alexandra does this, and then that happens, and then - WAVES HANDS/DEUX EX MACHINA/MAYBE THE READERS WON'T NOTICE - and everything goes as planned and she's in the next scene..."
