Wow, uhh... hi

Okay, so I should not be allowed to co-own a community because I fail at it. :o

But actually, I had a question. Figured I'd post it here since it pretains to writing and all, and this place hasn't seen any life in a while. So my question:

When you're writing a long story, what's your method as far as plot is concerned? Do you just write and invent it as you go along, do you map it all out first and then start writing, or...? It's the second one for me. I'm so obsessive about it, I feel like I need to have an understanding of the entire plot before I can write something viable. My teacher is on my case about it... nonono that's wrong, he says. But I feel terribly unorganized if I write without knowing the plot... especially since what I'm writing is a crazy-complicated fantasy/sci-fi... thing. So I was just curious as to what you guys do.

So how has everyone been? :D
