I’m currently working on my latest wip, Elawyn’s Song. Now I’m not one of those authors who can write by the seat of my pants, as I end up having to virtually rewrite the whole thing due to plot holes and inconsistencies. This being the case, I therefore plot everything out and make notes, so I don’t do the above. Fine, great. Except I got carried away and guess what? I didn’t consult my notes and the result is the first few chapters are full of – you guessed it – plot holes and inconsistencies! Dammit! You think I’d know better, wouldn’t you? 😦
So, what do you do? Write freehand or do you plot everything out?
