Okay, I am world building.
And working on goals and motivations and character descriptions for all my major characters (2 protagonists and 2 antagonists). And organizing research. Getting ready to do some serious brainstorming with my CP, followed by some serious outlining.
The book I'm currently working on is the first in a complicated post-apocalypse romance series, so I'm trying to really lay down some foundation before diving into the major part of the writing process. (Although I did write the first two chapters, so I could "meet" my protagonists.)
When you are writing, do you do all this? Do you do something different? Or do you just sit down and start writing...?
