This is my default behaviour, but I’m finally beating it. I now like to think of myself as by recovering fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants writer. I wonder if we should form some sort of association and have meetings. It’s useful to have a way of frequently reminding yourself of the perils of poor planning.

I don’t advocate a one size fits all approach to%2
