Author Haven, interviews Marc Schooley. They talk about a subject near and dear to my heart: Seat-of-the-Pants writing.
If you're a plotter, have you ever tried SOTP writing.
All of you SOTP writers, do you have any insights to share on how you write?
#4 got me. I should do a search for words like "nodded" and "shrugged." I'm sure I use them too often.
How about you? Is there a particular point on her list that nailed your shoes to the floor?
A few weeks ago, we had a Laurel Garver week. This is officially "Janalyn Voight" week. :) Congrats, Janalyn. Your posts keep me thinking.
Happy weekend Susan! Haha, I should do more word searches too, my English vocabulary is limited, so I do use my synonym button quite often :)
Hope you have a great weekend, Susan! I'm definitely a plotter, so no advice to give in the pantsing department. :)
I am almost done with the Red Ink - awesome. Have a great weekend.
Mom's my name and pantsing's my game. Well, kind of. I wash plenty, but being a weekly columnist, I feel that's how I have to write. I can do some planning, but it's the polar opposite of building a carefully-constructed plot for a fiction novel. Sigh. Some days there just isn't enough coffee...
I love what Janalyn has uncovered about Marc's writing. I didn't know you were allowed to write like that anymore. That's the way I write. I love finding out what my characters will do next. If people still write like this, then perhaps I could try another novel.
I am quite sure that I could not write the "all planned out way."
Will have to hop over to see the post. Thanks for the heads up. For some things I am a plotter (counting non fiction here too) and for others, SOTP. But even so, I still kind of plan in my head. Can't seem to totally turn it off. :)
Hi Marja -
I've found a book called, "The Synonym Finder," helpful. :)
Hi Katie -
Maybe I should get some pointers on plotting from you. :)
Hi Chatty -
I'm so glad you're enjoying the book. If you do reviews, I'm sure Kathi would appreciate your thoughts.
Hi Rhonda -
I can see how your situation would be conducive to pantsing. :)
Hi Nancy -
There are plenty of us around the blogosphere. I'm really a combination pantser/plotter. However, the "plotting" takes place mostly in my head. :)
Hi Karen -
You echoed my sentiments. I can't see myself writing extensive charts or plotting individual scenes. It's just not me.
