Ugh. This one is tough for me. I’ve tried both and neither one works in every situation. I need a little of both and what I need changes each book.

I guess my style is:
1. create characters and a basic story which may include an ending, but may not
2. put them in boiling oil and fry until crispy
3. get stuck because I didn’t outline
4. outline as far as I can which is usually just the next few scenes
5. go back to writing cause outlining feels like trying to sneeze a watermelon out of my nose
6. write until pulling hair out again and color outside the lines of the outline anyway
7. consider drinking large quantities of alcohol but end up with coffee instead due to the children jumping on my lap
7. rinse & repeat
