Do you take the right road through the elegant country lane? Or the left road down the overgrown and less traveled path? Do you follow the route planned out? Or do you be spontanteous and follow a different plan?
Writing Grace of the Valkyr is like thinking your following the planned route down the country lane, only to find that your plans have spontanteously turned into the less traveled road where I have to stumble your way over the overgrown path. My characters have their own ideas for what we are going to do, and while they loosely follow the plan, they causing me no end of troubles now.
