The OCD Writer

When I write, I tend to subscribe to the "letting the story flow" school of thought.  Writing outlines does not work for me, even if my ideas are basically outlined in my head.  Most times, though, I have an idea for the beginning, end, and a couple stopping points on the way.  As I make my way through these points, my mind tends to start doing its own thing and taking me down paths I didn't expect(usually with good results.)

That said, I may not be 100% structured when it comes to story planning/writing, but I sure am organized.  Here's a picture of what all I have pulled up when working on my current projects:

OCD much?  Yeah, a little.
