    Working on the first chapter of my new book, and a little excited about it. It's a Chic Lit number.
    Didn't initally start with an outline. Ernest Hemingway once said " My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way." Well, I sort of come from that school of thought. The simplest way for me is to hit the ground and run, like Hemingway, with no real plot in mind. I prefer to just tell the story--advancing and painting in the foggy areas as I go.
    Part of the appeal in writing for me is the mystery. It's no fun if I know whats going to happen ahead of time, and I find that it's the not knowing that makes the writing fun. I like being excited when a new idea for a scene or character just pops into my consiousness as I'm flowing. I find the structure of an outline is somewhat limiting and unimaginative. I usually end up changing it as I change the story anyway. That clearly defeats the purpose of the outline in the first place. I just kind've like to get the words out on the page and edit from there.
