Speaking of trying again, a few things you may not have previously known about me:
- I don't write in chronological order.
- I don't outline until I'm done with the book.
- I don't write chapters at a time.
- I don't know how long my books going to be until it's written.
I really shouldn't have ever said "don't" because . . .
I just finished a pretty extensive outline on my current wip that I'm only about 1/3 of the way through. This is a written-down-on-paper-with-enough-detail-I-don't-have-to-try-to-remember-everything-in-my-head outline. I tried this before once. The outline was more one wordish and I had no idea what I was thinking when I wrote it. I don't think it was supposed to be an outlined story.
From a pantser trying to write from an outline, I'm curious, have you tried going against your norm? Are you an outliner who's tried writing from the hip? Are you a pantser who's outlined your latest wip? How's it going?
