Can you recommend some good resources for writing outlines for short fiction? I have this book
which focuses on novel writing, and I'd like a comparable resource for short stories, novellas, and other, shorter pieces.

I've recently been converted to the "outline everything first" philosophy. The aforementioned Weiland book is proving very useful for my longer project, and I love the "how to guide" style Weiland uses. Is there a similar resource on outlining and planning short fiction? I'm looking more for full-length books and less for blog articles or bullet-points.
