This is especially relevant to my writing. While it does say fanfiction, it can also apply to most of my in process projects. I know some people believe strongly in a well planned outline, but my rough draft is a time to go for it and explore what’s out there. Knowing the tent poles (beginning, some key scenes and the end) is enough for me to usually come up with 60-80K to fill in the rest.
What works for you?
