comment Is it OK to invent as I write, or should I plan the entire story first?
Well, I cannot say anything about his story lines, but he says he does not have an ending in mind toward which he writes (in most cases). google.com/…

First, you can ask himself. From what I have read about/from him, I assume he will answer such questions freely. But I can say, that it took him some years to write the way he does today. He talks about that from time to time on his blog. His 'breakthrough' was when he started listen to his gut feeling (trust his subconscious) while writing and followed Heinlein's rules. You can learn a lot about him and how he is doing it when reading his Sacred Cows and Think Like a Publisher articles. Which I highly recommend.

comment Writing an Ending: how to prune away the Wrong ones?
You are in the plotting phase, aren't you? I do not see why several possible endings should bother you at this stage. Just leave the possibilities open. Start writing the story. It will (most probably) deviate from your plotline, giving new options which make the ending more obvious.
