So iv'e written a few pages of my novel and surprisingly i haven't scrapped this idea, so thankfully i have found a story i am willing to stick with after many sleepless nights of failure, but theirs a slight problem. When i started this story i legged it as fast as i could to get to the juicy parts so i wouldn't get bored and move onto another idea (and planning is extremely boring), but now that I've gotten some stuff written down i'm finding that i need to get organised with some sort of plan containing lore information, characters, world building, plot points etc. How do you plan your novels and if you don't plan, how do you keep track of everything in your book? I read somewhere that G.R.R.M didn't plan his first book but i have no idea how he could write something so huge and epic with no plan and there seems to be a million different ways to plan your novels. Thanks!
