An outline is a plan of events to happen in a work. Unlike a novel idea which dictates the very basics of the plot, the outline tries to partially or fully dictate the events within the plot while falling short of a word-for-word dictation of the novel itself. While the outlines of planners may be very detailed and must be followed, pantsers opt for a unfixed (doesn't have to be followed), often general outline or none at all.
