“I do not plan my fiction any more than I normally plan woodland walks; I follow the path that seems most promising at any given point, not some itinerary decided upon before entry … having discovered that I write fiction in a disgracefully haphazard sort of way, I now hit on the passage through an unknown wood as an analogy.”
Who is this person? What is his/her name?
Why is this person an outsider?
What does your character most want?
What is his/her most treasured possession?
What are the worst and best things that have ever happened to this person?

What or who is stopping this person from getting what they want?
Who are they?
“I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.” – Joan Didion
