I know I should do more of an outline, to detail the characters and the events more thoroughly, but it is so hard to break the habit of writing by the seat of one’s pants!
I need to discipline myself better. I think I’m going to do some outlining longhand as a means to force myself to slow it down, to think it through and lay out the pieces I have so far, and see what new pieces those might suggest.
Maybe another fleeting idea will drop on in, and I can grab that and do a short story the way I’ve always done, providing the best of both worlds? We’ll see.
I did make progress this morning…but I pantsed it…
