I've never written a long, fiction piece, and I honestly don't know how to begin. I'm far more comfortable writing non-fiction, with a thesis statement and detailed outline. So how do you plan a fiction piece? Do you just figure out the basics of the plot, and start writing? Or do you meticulously plan out every bit, scene by scene? Also, do you start writing from the beginning of your story, or somewhere in the middle? (With non fiction I usually write my introduction last, when I know the piece better.) I know everyone does it differently, but I'm just curious how you do it?
