I like to plan what I write but I just find the idea of a system like the Snowflake a little bit too much. Like its good to plan but I'd rather spend time writing as well as planning. I have sometimes planned my stories in my head to such an extent that I know what will happen and how it will happen and how it all fits together. The only trouble I have then is that I don't want to actually write it anymore because I know what's going to happen and its as if my creativity has been extinguished . So how much should you plan and into how much detail should you go into ? I like the idea of just having a vague outline of the theme and the main story and the outcome without actually knowing every detail. Surely if you plan too much it can take away the fun and actual enjoyment of creating the story as you go along. So how much do you plan or outline ?
