Writing begins with blank space and a blurry picture. I’ve had an idea for a scene; since the beginning, but I didn’t know where to place it. The scene shows why my cult has an interest in the three cousins. Should I reveal early or reveal, late? It’s a nice to know, but no need to know issue. After writing this post, I placed the reveal near the end but may pace a hint in an earlier section.

I plug in descriptions, after my first draft. Do a search for the first mention about a character and decide whether and how much description I want to add. Repeat with scene locations.
