Oh boy... I am so not prepared for this, so I'm kind of making it up as I go. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is what writing fiction is about! Yes, it's time for another post about Original Fic!
So, on that subject, are you a 'pantster'? that is, do you write your original stories as you go along, having little to no idea where they're going, or do you plot and plan things to the nth degree? Or perhaps you're somewhere in between. Tell me how you approach your own stories; what do you do to get things going, and how do you keep up the momentum?( Collapse )
And, before I get too carried away, I should probably finish here by saying that I recently started another WIP that I have actually written an outline for, although so far I have changed the names of all three lead characters and slightly altered the start. So much for plotting! I plan to start posting that fic soon, unbeta'd and in short chapters so that it's easily digested, and my aim is to finish the whole thing since I actually know where it should go, if I can manage to get back on track! ;-)
Now, I'm all ears... tell me how you work and what are you looking at right now? is it going to plan... or lack thereof?
