    I'm learning to accept that I'm a 3/4. I want to be a 1 but I don't think my stuff would be as good if I were.

    Cross between 2 and 3, depending how motivated I am in the beginning.

    I'm currently finishing research for a paper due this week, so this is relevant for me right now! This time I definitely did 2.

    It depends on my mood, usually I go with 4, especially if it's for a subject I couldn't give two shits about.

    If it's something I'm passionate about, chances are that I'll comply with 1 or 2.

    4, I find I get it done quicker that away instead of sitting there having to keep track of what I'm trying to say and how I'm structuring it. This is actually why I'm better writing than talking.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    3) Have a rough sketch of the outline (maybe in your head) and write as you feel like, allowing early incubation time, which makes it a rush to meet the deadline

    4) Rush straight in and sort out the structure a bit later

    Please indicate your personality type as I want to match them up without second guessing.

    Option 3, mostly. I tend to have a rough outline, jump in and plow through it, getting everything down in one sitting (if possible) and editting and working on the structure as I go, then I leave it to sit for a few days (or a day, if I'm tight on time). After that I go back in with some giant, imaginary shears and cut out anything I don't need until I think I have the leanest bits of what I mean to say.

    3/4, but mostly 4. Get a rough idea of where I want to go and how I want to get there, let it stew in my brain, then, as the deadline approaches, barf all the ideas out, then edit, edit, edit.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
