I don't know w...
I plot. Extensively. Before starting a new novel, I chart it out, chapter by chapter, scene by scene. For my current novel, I had nearly forty pages of notes. Then, when I'm actually writing, I mostly ignore them. 4. What is your favorite type of character to write about and why?

Bonded Against Fate
I write because… It’s my favorite thing in the world to do.  I’ve been making up stories for as long as I
can remember.  I love writing.  If I were your favorite cookie, what would I be? I would be white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. Plotter or pantster? ...
