There are different approaches writers take to creating a story. Some being with a clear outline and simply write from start to finish following the path that is already plotted. Others begin writing, and follow the lead of the story.

There are successful writers who have used both methods. What all writers must do if they want to publish, is to revise the story once it is complete and to continue revising until there is nothing left to improve.
