My Writing Process

Posted on January 29 by Lucy Leiderman

I consider myself an organized person. When I try to develop an idea for a book, I like to plan everything out. The whole story arc develops as I lay out every chapter and create a plan for writing and staying on schedule. If I don't have a checklist of things I need to take my characters though, I find my writing really slows down and drifts. That being said, the most important thing I know about making a writing plan, is that you need to be flexible. Maybe the plan happens exactly as you lay it out for some writers, but that's never happened to me.
