For the first eighteen years of my life I lived in Maine, surrounded by nature and my large, loving family. Now I'm a first-year student at Boston University, planning to get my bachelors of science in film and television. I've had a pretty odd and emotionally complicated life so far, so that kind of comes out in my art. I know most people are smart and try to get really good at one kind of art, but I'm just not that kind of artist. I like to try to do new and odd things all the time.
I've been trying to make more time for writing over the past nine weeks, and I think that there are really two ways to approaching a story.
The first method is something I call in my head 'blueprint writing'. This is when I carry an idea around in my head for months, even years, before I even put pen to paper. And when I finally start writing, I'm not writing the story. I'm building a world, a history, deciding every single character and every single thing that will happen scene by scene. Laying down the foundations to writing before I start. 
The second method of writing I've started to notice in my work is 'organic writing'. I just sit down immediately with the idea of a first scene, and nothing else. I create and name characters in the same heartbeat, make up backstories midsentence, worldbuild only when I breathe. And when I do get an idea for a scene, I don't try to make an outline, I write it. And then if it gives me more ideas, I just go with them. I don't know what's next, and I certainly don't know how it will end or what the message is. 

I'm not sure which writing method I prefer. The 'blueprint writing' makes me feel confident, and I write really meaningful stuff when I do it. But I take soooooo much time planning that it's forever before I even finish anything. The 'organic writing' style is much more addicting for me, but I'm not sure if it's noticeable sloppy. 

Anyway, those are two different approaches to the writing process I've noticed. What do you think? What are some ways that you write? Do you have a favorite way to start?
