To Plot … or not to Plot …

26 Oct


What arrives on paper first?  Are you a writer who maps and plans meticulously with graphs and charts or do you explore your inner (chaotic) Chi to to craft your ideas?  Various authors below discuss their methods.  Which works for you?

‘During the long time it takes to write a novel, many ideas will come to the mind of the novelist.  A single glance at his graphic chart will inform him if his new idea is really part of his grand scheme or not.’

– Manuel Komroff.

‘I always have a basic plot outline, but I like to leave some things to be decided while I write.’

– J K Rowling

‘The writing I like best is when I don’t know know what I’m doing.’

– Thomas McGuane.
