How do you approach writing? Are you methodical and organized, or haphazard and scattered? How do you map out what your book or story is going to look like?

In six words, tell us: How do you outline?

Manuscript finished! Query letter to who?

I just trace the dead body.

(Sorry! I have a weird sense of humor. lol) 

Ten manuscripts, let my characters lead.

Go with the flow!

Pen to paper then type it up.

Lots of pain, but it works.

I have to handwrite first in a notebook.I do what I call the spider web method before anything else.I start out putting my main Idea in the middle draw a circle around it and add lines outside of it making a spider web or what looks like a sun. I put all my other thoughts on the lines around the spider web.After that I write out a structured beg, middle,end standard outline but written in ink not typed.I then after type it up and it all comes together from there.

Get image, close eyes and type.
