The Way We Write

When it comes to how a book is written, writer's generally fall into two camps - plotters or pantsers. Over at Writer's Evolution this week, we are tackling the issue of plotter vs. pantser and who is right.

Pantser: A writer who does little to no plotting and writes whatever flys into their head - writing by the seat of their pants.

Plotter: A writer who plots the entire story before writing down the first word. Can be either a simple out line or an extremely detailed, 100 page outline.

Which one do you feel you are?

I'm a pantser. If I outline, it's like telling the story, which makes it hard to impossible to actually write the story.
