I guess this isn't altogether a bad thing as my plot was non existent earlier today. The other week I sat down in my son's playgroup and, whilst he ran about, created an entire world in which my story takes place. It went a bit fantasy, I wasn't intending it to, but that's what it took form as and I'm happy with where it went. Now, my plot. I've got a general idea of what is going on at the start of the story, but not sure where it should go from here. I've been writing this afternoon whilst the kids are at school/pre-school and it seems to be just coming out! I've got my Evernote up and it's all muddled and I suspect, should someone else look at it, they will be super confused. It's currently a fantasy based story of environmental disaster and racial oppression - heavy! This has evolved swiftly! I'm wondering whether I should go with my initial idea and write the first few chapters of the story, take a break and edit, then go back to it with fresh eyes. I'm not wanting to completely wing it as this will be my first major work (eeeekk) so need to have some idea of where things will end up. On the other hand, I seem to be doing OK with simply letting my brain relieve itself of everything I've been wanting to write for the past 15 years!
