Then it slows down a little...
A little more...
Until I spend more time staring at the blank page than writing.
I've finally accepted that I am not a panster. I admire the people who can follow the unknown world of their story and push past the uncertainty.
I, however, am not one of those people.
Usually at this point, I buckle down and write an outline. Not a ridiculously detailed outline. More like a sentence or two about each scene. And then I can start writing again. The outline changes as I write, but it gives me the direction I need to keep my fingers typing. I guess this makes me a plotter, but more a half foot in, half foot in the sky type.
What about you? Where do you fall on the plotter vs. panster spectrum?
