As a GM, you really have to be flexible. In order to be a decent or good GM, you have to be the definition of flexible. The ability to think on your feet at a moment’s notice is paramount. More often than not, you will be totally ignoring the carefully thought out notes and plot that you spent hours on and instead winging it because one of your players got distracted by a shiny object.
