@msweet oh this is a great topic. I'm at a similar place in my writing project.
Boring but probably correct advice: stop analyzing, just dive in and write a chapter.
Not necessarily chapter 1, but whichever chapter you're most excited about.
After writing a chapter, come back up for air and consider whether the chapter you wrote suggests ideas that are better than the ones in your outline. If it does, change the outline. If not, do another chapter.
