As some of you may know, I am the host of Total-E-Bound's blogtalk radio show www.blogtalkradio.com/total-e-talk I have been interviewing authors for the show for what will be two years in September! Wow can't believe its been that long! I love doing the author interviews it is so much fun to hear about other author's writing processes and how they come up with their ideas. Everyone is so different and there is no right way to write of course. Everyone does what works for them.
Well I decided to try something different, that seems to work for quite of few authors. To really plan before I write. To map out the plot and detail what will happen to the characters before I even write a single word. The total opposite of what I usually do when I am starting a new story.
So how did it go?....not at all! I am just not wired that way I guess, I can't plan it all, can't plot detail before I start. I start to stress when I do that. I get hung up on the details and it stifles my creativity.
So I guess I won't be switching my writing process any time soon.
