I was thinking about the writing process and thought this might be an interesting discussion. I am the type of person who likes to know what is happening and I like to be in control of most situations (for better and worse). This translates in my writing process as I usually have to flesh out an entire idea before I can begin writing. How do you guys write? Can you start with an idea and keep writing to see where it takes you? Or are you like me and do you like to plan ahead and know what is going to happen in your story? What I am more interested in however, is how far you take this. Even before you begin writing do you know how your story is going to evolve chapter by chapter? Do you know how you story will start and end and do you fill in the middle as you go? Or do you just have a general idea of what you want to achieve and let loose and see what happens?
