I'm doing Nanowrimo again this year. My word count after day 1 is 2052. Before I started my story yesterday I had a small outline written. When I began writing I obviously started with the first scene I had laid out. Initially it was a small scene; I thought it would be maybe 500 or 1000 words. 2052 words later my first scene was finished. This always happens when I write. I get general ideas in my head, and as I write the ideas get fleshed out. I try to make the ideas more detailed in my outlines, but often the details don't come to me until I'm actually in the process of writing. It's not necessarily a bad thing, and I'm not complaining, but I'm curious. Does this happen to anyone else? I sometimes hear about writers saying their characters change things in the story (alter the plot, a minor characters becomes major, etc.), and while that's happened to me too, it's not quite the same as what I described with the outlines. So, other writers on my friends list, does this happen to you too?
