For me, the planning is the best bit.
Because of how I plan I get to live it all as it happens. I pace around the house thinking scenes over. I get into character. I talk to myself. It's definitely weird, file it under eccentric writer syndrome. But it's so intense, emotional and beautiful I then have to write it down, and I can never quite do it justice. If I could write a novel just by thinking, it would be perfect.
Now writing, that's a different story. I have to coherently sew the scenes I've created together by replicating them in my head as accurately as I can and so form a narrative that makes sense. Unlike the little games I played while creating the world.

And it's never as raw or painful as when it first happened.

Seriously, planning is the easiest part. It all comes so easily, but getting the words down in the perfect order is almost impossible.

My entire planning stage consists of making amazing characters with wonderful backstories and personalities and stuff... and having no plot.

I'm usually really intense about plotting and structure, but I've been free writing today and it's so much fun. I've written more than three thousand words in around four hours, and it just feels so easy. So I think I might try free writing more often c:

((plus there's hot characters)) ((i love hot characters))

okay so i have this idea i really like, but it takes place over the course of someone's lifetime and i don't even know how to write it because it's all these separate events that occur at different stages of his life and does anyone even know how to write like that because i do not.
