How do I write?

I write linearly. This means I start at the beginning and stop when I reach what my characters tell me is the end. My characters can be very vocal about such things. There are many ways to write, but this is the one that works for me. Despite knowing the characters, I don’t necessarily know how the story will end, though I do have a gist as to the general parameters. I let the story unfold through the characters as they develop, evolve, and work off each other. This means that a linear writing method is the only one that will work for my style. Sometimes characters surprise me and show me things I was not expecting.
