Planning

There are many things that need to be decided when it comes to planning to write, publish, market, and distribute a work. Although the creative side of our art might spur us into writing a heart-felt treatise ala stream of consciousness, the reality is that we must be mindful of how we go about it. Other than off-loading a burdened heart or fulfilling a whimsical albeit garrish pang of chupchick, it takes planning to successfully turn your magnum opus into a well-marketed, acclaimed work of art.

If you don't spend time doing that up front, you will naturally evolve the storyline as you go. That is plotting; it's simply not the most effective way to write. It also denies you the benefit of working through issues in your logic. By the time that you write a piece, you should already know what it is you want to say; otherwise, you will have to multitask between developing the plot and crafting a rich Giving organization to your idea, giving it scope and definition, allows you to unleash your creativity.
