Spontaneity. Do you do anything to ensure that your writing has and preserves a layer of spontaneity? I think for me, I lot of energetic writing happens in my first or early drafts. And lately I've been working to not lose that energy. I know with Scott and his outlining, the spontaneity also can come in the early drafts, when he allows himself to deviate from the outline.
What about you? How do you keep that energy alive? Do you even want to?
