[quote="plughmann"]But it sure seems easier to connect the dots to make all the scenes line up well from start to finish if you have the major ones figured out before you start.
That does not kill creativity. It just moves it closer to the beginning than later in the detailed writing effort.[/quote]

"Easier" does not automatically mean better, any more than faster does.

But we've had this "discussion" over and over before, in all your past incarnations (williamadams/mike m/noob - wasn't Pat James in there too? Too many to keep track of.). :roll:

We have never had a discussion before.

No way that doing it harder will be better than doing it the easier way.
No way that doing it faster will be worse than doing it the slow way .

Right. Just because you use the same "code words", react with the same angry insults when confronted - nah. Never happened. :roll:

From http://www.writersdigest.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=268064&start=10

"And I won't be silenced by antifa type libtard attacks." - and if you do a forum search for "libtard" you'll find your old insults under the various aliases you've used before.

We're really not as stupid as you think. (Now waiting for the inevitable "but it's your fault I said that" response in 3...2...1...)

Yes, william, we have.

I'm really not sure why you get so angry, but when you do, you post without consideration for what you post. And that's when the similarities come out.

We see them.

Look at the insults you all slung at my critique of dorck's sample. At least I gave him feedback. You only attacked me again about another post.

None of your comments here have anything to do with the post you quoted.
You just used it as an excuse to get personal.

Reply to the post and stop attacking people.

Show one from me.

Then you MIGHT understand why you're seen as a troll, william.
