Plan by writing, not by planning

“It’s not genius, it’s just that if you want something good to come out of something, you have to put in a lot of effort. That involves a lot of hard work, and a lot of blood, sweat and tears sometimes. No different to anything, no different to what we all do.” — Hubert Selby Jr

Plan by writing, not by planning.

Build from the bottom up.

Not building a wall — just making bricks.

Plan on-the-fly.

Need to research your novel?

Write it first, then research the bits that you need to fill in the gaps.

If you plan first, you’ll plan yourself out of existence.

If you make the perfect plan for your book, you’ll lose all desire to write the messy drafts required to finish the actual book.

Fluid drafts, within set parameters, as opposed to rigid work plans.

Keep it fluid.
