Writing Is Easier When…

You outline.

But I never outline properly.

I always end up straying away from my outline because my characters have minds of their own. Not that I’m complaining or anything.

Characters are people too.

  1. So true! I was always such an outlining fanatic for academic papers, but with my creative writing, I feel constricted. I go into it with the best intentions, but I rarely end up following the outline.
    By the way, I tagged you for the three days, three quotes challenge! YIPPEE!!!


  2. I outline, but only roughly. I don’t think I could stick to an outline at all. My characters all become independent and resist the intended direction of the plot.


      1. I try doing that kind of list, but they never get completed. Anyway, I find it nearly impossible to predict how much time I’ll have, since I have a 3 year old daughter. So, I stick with daily lists or long term lists.


Speak your mind!
