So, I’m writing a chapter where the villain escapes capture by flying away wearing a wingsuit and I thought, now what? Where do I go from there? It can be frustrating as hell not knowing what to write next.
I read somewhere that most authors of full length novels like to create an outline before they start writing. I prefer not knowing how it’s going to end. I like to let my characters surprise me, because as frustrating as it can be at times, discovering where the characters want to go next can be a total rush. An (almost) addictive natural high that encourages me to write more.
Everyone’s writing style is different, and I’m not saying my way is the best way, but it certainly is fun writing without a parachute.
