I feel as though I spend at least as much time plotting and planning as I do in the actual writing. The thinking stage for flash fiction sometimes takes as much time as a short story. Maybe that is due to having fewer words to express an idea.
Discipline – show up every day to write and actually write
Foresight – have to have an idea to write about
Research – what was that guys’ name? what is that detail I almost remember?

Still working on the done right leading to total victory.
What is your process? Do you plot and plan and strategize? Or can you just sit and write?
Keep on writing.
