    Do you have a plan in mind when you create, or do you start your piece and see where it takes you?

    Regardless of your medium, do you have a plan in mind when you create, or do you start and see where it takes you?

    That is a great question, I guess I try to have a plan in mind, I start at microsoft word, so it my hub doesn't sound like a babble but, then sometimes things ideas arise and I find myslef in a hurry.
    I would like to find ideas for hubs in need that will bring the traffic I am looking for.

    More often than not, I have a plan.  I rarely plot it out, but there's generally an idea that's been swirling around in my noggin for a while and in writing, it begins to evolve.  I tend to think out loud when I writing is a bit of that for me as well.  What often happens is that I end in a very different (and often better) place than I may have originally planned. 

    Very interesting question.  Anxious to see some of the answers.

    I always have a plan. For Hubpages I made a list of ideas that I could write about and when I feel in the writing mood I open the list and take a look and see if any of them strike me as being a subject I want to tackle.

    It depends what medium I am working with.
    If it is a painting, then I pretty much have to have something in mind. It actually happens that way anyway. I see what I want to paint first. When drawing it is a little of both, or sometimes I just start to draw.
    When I work with polymer clay, some times I know what I want to make and other times, most times I just start to warm up the clay and play around and something comes out of it.
    With beads, both larger beads and seed beads, again it can go both ways, but with beads it is more a make it up as I go along sort of thing. I may have picked a color or two that is not working out so have to change it.
    With the peyote stitch I let the geometric-symmetric patterns evolve on their own.
    When I sew, I know what I am making.
    Overall- I would say I envision the thing I am going to make. Sometimes it comes out the same way, sometimes it doesn't.

    when I'm painting, sometimes i just paint a sky and maybe a mountain or distant hills and something always turns up.

    when I'm playing guitar, I like just to doodle; lean back in my chair and play notes, sometimes a tune will appear, if it dosen't then I don't care

    For me it's a little of both. When I write a story, for example, I can't get it off the ground without characters and a setting. Inventing them on the fly as I'm writing, just kills the momentum and I lose interest. So by getting those out of the way earlier I can let the story go in any direction I want without stumbling over missing details.

    If you ask me, I always think of some topic that will make ideas flow. The first line is the one I work upon thoughtfully, because for me, it stimulates me to write further spontaneously. However, others may have a different approach.
