Me, I’ve always been a pantser, when it comes to plotting. Which is writer-speak for being too lazy to actually generate an outline, a plan of the plot. Just let the story flow, just let the characters tell the story in their own way. And it has worked well for short stories (15 publication credits and counting). But that doesn’t mean it’s the only way, and more importantly to me, that doesn’t mean it’s best suited for longer works. So I am trying out plotting.
As I’m a novice at this, I asked Toby to help. Of course, I had to bribe him with the promise of a walk, but I needed a break. And a bag of munchies. And another cup of coffee. Not sure if the process fits yet, but I’m trying it out. Stay tuned.
So to my writer buddies out there, do you plot or pants?
Either way, keep on writin’!
