I tend to daydream a lot before starting a book, and take a lot of notes, then I write a fairly detailed outline of scenes. I often know how the book will end and have imagined a number of major scenes throughout, but not always how I will get there. When I’m about two-thirds done I reoutline the whole book so I know that I’m delivering on all I promised. I write every day, although the number of hours varies depending on where I am in the book. Longer hours come toward the end.
