Is it a problem to have produced a 6800-word outline for a 5000-word essay?
(The good news is that I somewhat arbitrarily set the word-limit myself, so I can probably violate it at will. The other good news is that the essay is, by and large, written, though in bullet-form; some sentences need subjects and articles yet, but many of them are already in place, and just need reformatting. The less-good news is that that’s all I’ve accomplished so far this weekend. Off to run, now, so I can cross something else off the list…)
