Directional Plans

So the other day, I was thinking I was going to do a lot of writing – well, more than what I would normally do when I do decide to do some writing.

But instead (in amongst getting sidetracked) I ended up starting to plot one of the stories that I’m currently trying to write.  For some reason, I feel like the story is somewhat flat and I think that if I start to plot the story and the characters, perhaps it would help me lift the story.

I’m not big of plotting a story – not in a lot of detail anyway. I’m more into letting the story grow organically while I’m writing it and editing it and rewriting it.

I have tried letting this particular story to grow organically but it doesn’t seem to be quite there yet. Yes, it has grown and started going in a particular direction which I think is good for the story. But I don’t think it’s quite there yet and I’m hoping that the plotting I’m in the process of doing is going to help it.

Does anyone else have similar problems when writing?
