Plotter or Pantser?

Fiction writers are usually divided into two main categories: Plotters and Pantsers. So which are you? Plotter or Pantser? Maybe you don't know the difference. So lemme splain it. 

Do you carefully create an outline before you type the first word? Or do you just sit down at the keyboard and start pecking away? 

I would love to hear about your style and your reasons for choosing to work that way. Please leave a comment and tell us what works for you. 

Your turn. Plotter? Pantser?


  1. I'm a plantser. I plot the major points in the book to avoid getting lost but leave plenty of scope to follow the characters about and discover all those amazing details I never could have thought of by myself.


    1. Jeffrey -- LOL! I love the term you've come up with. It's a hybrid version. Love it.
