A lesson from The Dark Knight: Don’t overplan
At some point this year I want to sell an eBook. I thought I’d try to fire off a bunch of posts to practice writing and then compile those into something and illustrate them and sell the eBook.
I’m tempted to overplan.
(In fact, I’m writing this first post just hoping that something pop-culture-y will come to mind about overplanning or underplanning or just getting started.)
Okay something came to mind… my favorite movie.
There’s the intro scene in The Dark Knight where The Joker robs the bank and manages to kill the rest of his team so that he gets all the money.
It’s clearly very meticulously planned out and necessary.
Because he wasn’t writing a casual eBook!
He was, as mentioned, robbing a bank and getting his teammates to murder each other.
Writing can be hard but not that hard. So I’m going to just get to writing this thing.
