Have you heard of the Throughline?

When writing, do you ever go off on a tangent, (which is probably some of your best writing ever) only to have to cut it later? 

Keeping your thoughts set on your Throughline can ease this waste of time. 

According to Nancy Lamb "The best way to travel the length of your story is to grab hold of the throughline—the driving force of the book—and refuse to let go. There can, of course, be more than one throughline in a book. But as you will see, there should always be one fundamental throughline that pulls the reader from beginning to end. And this is never more important than when writing for young readers."
