Writers Question: How do you write your stories? (Planning/Remembering)

I’m an awkward mix of organized and a complete mess…
Basically what I do is create a list of events on a google slideshow thingie in chronological order, do some research on the things I don’t know about and put those on different slides, set self deadlines, that kind of thing. Then as I get more ideas, I tweak the list a bit. Then I get writing, and kind of make up things as I go while following the event list… After that I force my friend to edit for me and then I edit and then I’m done with a chapter.
