I don't plan a whole lot - if I get the spark of an idea, I'll write down a sentence or two so that I'll remember it (I also don't remember things), but I like to leave the story undeveloped until I've gotten through the first draft. Otherwise, I find that I lose interest about halfway through or I'm too confined in what I write. Generally, the process of writing the first draft develops characters and plot for me, although it leaves a lot for editing then. So in contrast to you, I don't want to know where the story is going until it gets there - it's more like reading in that sense. I write fantasy and scifi primarily, since that's what I usually read.
