I'm getting back into writing Heroes and it's made me think about plotting out the entire novel. Usually I have a bare bones outline and let my characters direct where they want to go, but with this novel, I've found out that I need to reign in my MC's and I need to know exactly where I'm going. Since there's 2 MC's I need to know exactly what's going to happen, what I'm going to leave in and most importantly what I'm going to leave out.
Now, there's only one problem I've got to deal with when writing, and that's making sure my characters actually listen to me.
So, how do you write? Are you the plotter or the flyer?
Can you be a writer if you don't write?
