i loosely plot (we're talkin' Real Loose) and pants the rest of it. yeah, sometimes i end up lost w/o a clue, but i've been able to fix most of those, and bend things back in the general direction they're s'posed to go. attended a panel at ConDFW one year, 5 pantsers and a plotter. the plotter was indignantly mystified how pantsers could write at all! She was the Puppet Master! She'd Never Allow A Character To Dictate Story! the pantsers just grinned. and i decided to never read anything the plotter wrote, as i can't imagine them having life.

My type-A brain kills a good idea deader than a beloved character in a Joss Whedon series! The only way I can finish a story is to write it so fast that my brain doesn't have time to interfere with what the characters are doing.
