I have a problem

Actually I have a collection of problems, but I’m not going to list them here.
Here’s the deal-e-o. Some of you know I’m working on a book called the 3by3 writing method. It comes in three parts (writing, publishing, marketing) each with three subsections. I was good to go until over the holidays one of my rules were to outline the novel before starting the acutal writing. I realized that I could have never, and would never pre-plot a novel.
Yet I know there is NO WAY to finish a novel without some kind of plan. I know what I’ve done, but I am looking for other methods.
Usually there is a motivator that catapults us into the book – thinking of a great scene, an emotion, a memory, even smells that trigger a great moment.
I wrote an entire book called “Holly Would, But Stacy Won’t” because I loved the title.
So here is my question: give that you know how your book starts, how do you keep your voice consistent, create the middle of the book and define you ending?
I have a problem, can you help solve it?

About 3by3 writing method

The author of 12 books, half of them textbooks, two novels and three self help. has struggled with his challenges of completion, distractions, plotting and writers block. Finally after getting stopped I stopped and analyzed what was going on and spent a lot of introspection, research and reading trying to locate the source of these issues. The result of was the 3by3 writing method - a three step program to start and then continue the process of completing a story all the way to publication.
