After you have free written your thoughts and ideas of what the story is. You came up with a plot and theme. maybe not, sometimes that comes after. It's time to make an outline. The outline is bones of the craft.
Not everyone is comfortable with an outline. Some write and write and let the story unfold. Others write out the outline and flesh in the rest later.
Whatever you're comfortable with the outline helps. If you don't do outlines, but you do write the story first. You can use this section after you write the story, and use it as a tool to know what chapters contain what.
