I imagine proper writers have a clear idea in their heads of what they want to write about, the main characters, an outline plot, style.
Apparently some have the entire thing mapped before they sit down to write a single word.
It didn’t work that way for me.
Each time I sat in front of the computer, I had no idea what was to happen in the next chapter, or where the plot was going. I simply made it up as I went along.
Which is probably the worst possible way to write a story. But it was the only way I could do it.
This could either mean I have a lot to learn (undoubtedly true), or that we’re all different and have to find our own way – just like life, really.
