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.

Solee Hommel: FYI: I will be self-quarantining for the rest of the month, having just returned from travel that may or may not have exposed me to things we're not supposed to be sharing. Hopefully, I'll be back in April. Stay safe, everyone!
