I wonder this sometimes myself! The poems often come fast and as complete pieces. I return to them to adjust lines and revise them, but I often have the scope as a whole. Fiction I might get an idea or a question I want to probe and find the answers. I may get a voice of a character at the same time, but often I don't have more than a line or two at the beginning. As for story vs. novel, my novels often have a family of voices rather than one or two. (less)
