Flash of insight time:
Went back to transfer the below story beginning into either Pages or Storyspace and realized that since I already know the story, there’s no purpose to writing it!
Completely lost interest.
Every writer implements a different writing process that works for their style of writing; laying out the whole plot in diagram or just going with the flow. I’m a "flow" type; whatever happens, happens and if I don’t know what’s happening, I just ask myself to ponder the possibilities and it rolls on. For the planner, there are even software writing packages that can not only organize a writer’s ideas, but help spur him on index card style.
So how many stories are lost with either process?
