There’s a Writing Prompt in That…

“Adventure is just bad planning.”- Roald Amundsen

This may be true of life itself, but in writing it’s only somewhat true.

Think about it. Those of us who plan out our stories may end up changing things along the way because the story went in unexpected directions. Those of us who let the story take us along for the ride can often end up with an incredible story on our hands.

Maybe there’s something to be said for not planning, or being open to mis-steps in our planning.
