Unplanned Writing Hipster Slut 13/12/22(Sun)08:23 No. 17079

File 138769699615.jpg - (79.81KB , 1024x760 , 1372960637060.jpg )

I'm writing a novel about a snobbish has-been author.
I normally plan out my stories and write the events, but I'm trying out a different style this time.
Sort of a "Just write it" style. I don't know where the story is headed, but I feel liberated and unsure.
I'm hoping my story doesn't run out of steam.
I plan to revise and probably rewrite once I've spilled my thoughts on the word document. (I read Stephen King uses this method, his books tend to be long, with a ton of characters.)

Has anyone else tried this type of writing style? If so, what is your experience on keeping the story fresh. I find myself expanding on scenes, when I normally keep them as short as possible.

there's a variety of ways to make a plan come together

I know of 3

you can spill your thoughts out, you can outline a general plot and make the individual sections fit the theme, or you could have a general starting concept and then gradually evolve it as things go along, keeping in mind the importance of the rough structure

I guess I'm trying to spill my thoughts and write it sort of like "On The Road".
