When I was a little girl, one of my FAVOURITE things to watch was Anne of Green Gables. I have seen those DVDs so many times now, I almost know them by heart.
As I was driving my son home from kindy yesterday, my mind was flickering with images of my new project and I wondered if I should be writing any of this down then a line from Anne of Green Gables came to me.
It was in the second series and the wind had blown all her pages of writing away. As she was offered help in gathering them up she said it really wasn't a problem. "I've got it all filed away in my imagination."
Don't get me wrong, I do write stuff down, but when I'm in the middle of planning out a story, my imagination works as the perfect filing system. As scenes grow and develop, my filing cabinet is culled and new things are put in its place, but I find it a great way to work.
How do you guys plan?
Do you have everything filed away in your brain or do you have to get stuff down as soon as it comes to you?
