The two main schools of thought about novel writing are (1) Carefully plan the outline chapter by chapter, scene by scene; (2) Start with a character/situation and see what happens.

From my unscientific surveys, (2) is far and away most popular method of the world's greatest authors. I think Doctorow was referring to this method.
