I have got an idea and I am thinking how should I do the plot outline for? Does it need to be very long the outline. Maybe I need to do some brainstorming as well. How amount of time shokuld i do plan, reseach, charaters bio, weeks, months and years I just need to understand that stage before I start the writing stage? I know how improtant this is for any writer as I need to get to know my plot and my charaters beforehand. So it would make it easier to write the novel if I do this kind of thing. Or is it best for me to just write?
