Thinking of doing my first mission; do you think it's best to outline it first?

Well as others have said, it's a personal preference. I do outlines about very general plot lines and how it should go or where it should be done on, but not specific things like dialog. And all of it is in my head, really, with few minor notes scribbled somewhere.
The emphasis I would add is sometimes the foundry gives you challenges that forces you to change your outline (as others also have said). Branching comes to mind the most when it comes to foundry challenges.
Anyway short answer: I tend to wing it if winging it means I only have a generic plot idea and progression in my head and I make that more wholesome once I interact with the tool.
