This is so not what you think it is!
Vincent Zandri is posting about whether he plans/outlines his novels or just goes for it.
Personally, I cheat. I write the end first, then go back and write a beginning that gets me there. The trip is so much easier, if you already know where you're going.
Just read So What Are You: Indy or Anal? and you'll see where Zandri puts himself.
Now ... where do you put yourself?
