outlining or making it up as you go? telling everyone and their mother about your project or telling no one until it’s done? character outlines or setting maps? romantic subplots or no? happy endings or sad endings? twist endings or second act twists? everyone’s happy and alive or no one is safe from the grim reaper that is your pen? painstakingly researching every detail or “we’re having a magnificent garden party and reality’s not invited”?
