Cleanest first draft ever (so far)

I'm working on the second draft of Hostile Planet, but I'm not finding a lot of fault.  I usually do some major surgery on first drafts--moving entire scenes around, adding new scenes, and so on--but this book has been different.  I think it's due to the more detailed outline I started with.  I simply didn't have to conjure up much stuff along the way, so everything fits well together.

Conclusion: the more detailed the outline, the better the first draft.
