Plotting and Pantsing - Plan your book or wing it?

Plotting and Pantsing - Plan your book or wing it?

When it comes to writing a book, there are essentially two types of authors. 

The first is the plotter—the person who starts with a bullet list or a story treatment or story beats, and follows that plan from beginning to end. These authors can be meticulous and exacting, or they can use a more "loosely outlined" approach. 

The second type, and the category I most often fall into, is the pantser. Yeah ... irony.

Why you need a writing space (and how to make one)

Why you need a writing space (and how to make one)

I've written a lot of my best work at Starbucks and Barnes & Noble. I get inspired by rows of books and gallons of coffee. When I'm winding down and feeling the drag of pushing through for another thousand words or so, I can get up and wander and pick things up and get all jazzed, and then get back to work. Assuming my seat wasn't taken while I was gone.

I love it. But I have to confess — I think I love my home office more.

Ravenscraft, the "Podcast Answer Man.
