Are your stories character-driven? Plot-driven? World-driven? Something else?

Which one do you feel best describes yours?

I think its mostly character.

I'll have a whole idea in my head for a plot and start writing the characters, only to find that within a few chapters they're not going to do what I originally wanted them to do lol. I still try to fit my plot into the story though and just work with the characters after that.

My fanfic for example. I had originally intended it to be an E/B fic. But it was clear after chapter 4 there was just way too much heat between E/C that it could ever go the way I intended.

Thank you tasha_mae for the awesome siggy!

I am plot based, almost every day new "story" ideas pop into my head. It's the characters I struggle to develop the most.
