J.G. Ballard on the Notes Before the Outline

"[Before the synopsis,] I talk over ideas to myself on the machine,... type out little ideas, let my mind wander. [N]otes [cover] everything from the main themes to the details of the setting, the principal characters, etcetera, all of which I’ve daily speculated upon in the months before I begin."
-- J.G. Ballard in the Paris Review interview
