I am definitely character-driven; sometimes they have ideas that are better than mine. 😉 In fact, that happened again just this morning. Great article here.

As much as it sounds like one, no, that isn’t a trick question. And we’re not talking about ghost-writers either.
There are many voices involved when writing. Some of these we’re aware of, others are more ambiguous. We all bring with us, after all, however subconsciously, our prior experiences (whether we remember them or not).
As such, there are many ways a story can come together, but most of them can be boiled down to being either a) author driven or b) character driven.
