Planning – a new experience…


Up until now all of my writing has been ‘free flow’. My initial idea or thought literally flows through my mind into my fingertips and I have no control over the work’s length, story arc or ultimate ending. From simple prompts I have created short stories, novellas and novel length pieces letting my characters lead me on their journey. I thoroughly enjoy being taken into situations and locations by my muse, reveling in the twists and turns and in some cases startling diversions. Once the words are written, however, like all writers, the revisions and editing take place to refine the manuscript.
However, my current idea has me in unfamiliar territory – planning and research. An integral part of this project is to make it an educational tool. The basic story is my own imagination gone wild (nothing new there then!) but as I will be incorporating factual aspects I will need to be diligent. Facts after all have to be factual and correct.
In my current research I have discovered some very interesting information – in essence I am learning something new every day. These facts are making my current project a unique experience for me and also an enjoyable one.
Have any of your projects taken you on an unfamiliar path?
