  1. Great post, David. I agree with most of what you’ve said. I especially feel it’s important to put your emotions into the piece. People can feel it when they read and it transforms the writing. With a novel, I do feel like you need to do a little more prep work, a loose outline, but you do have to allow room to let the characters and words take you where they will.

    • yes…can’t speak much to novel, yet. I agree, requires planning. Did you know John Irving writes his novels from the last chapter back? Not sure if he uses an outline or not…would like to know…interesting…of course, we can’t all be John Irving!
