There it is. The big word. The big structure. The big backbone of our stories, and it's my weakness.
How can that be? you ask. Doesn't every writer want to write b/c they have a story inside them? Don't you come to the page with an outline in mind?
And I answer, I have asked myself all of these questions and I pray to God the answer is that there is another way.
How do you do it? Do you make yourself attack an outline until your plot is complete? Do you go to a work with a fully formed beginning, middle, and end?
I'm expecting as many different ideas as there are responses, and I'm hoping to find my way in some combination of the below...For the sun is shining and the kids are in school. The time is now.
