The writing process: Mutant Enemy writer Jane Espenson explains how breaking, developing and writing a story works in the Jossverse. (Careful, it's spoilery for tonight's episode of Buffy - S7x07)
"People outside the writing process are sometimes disappointed to learn that we are following a detailed outline. They feel that there can be little creative work left to do in the actual writing, but this is not the case. This is, in fact, the most exciting and freeing part of the process… every word spoken, every punch thrown, is spelled out by the writer at this stage. For me, this, more than during filming, is when the episode actually becomes *real*."
