Exploring the Possibilities


Over the last few months I’ve come to realize that, I’m very much of a conflicting mind when it comes to the plotting vs pantsing debate. On the one hand, plotting allows you to clearly define where your story needs to go. On the other, pantsing feels a lot more freeing.But as I’ve started to realize, like it or not, a series dictates a certain necessity for a meticulous outline and note taking, and ultimately a well thought out and well documented timeline of events. Whatever else I have said to the contrary about outlining, it offers a great opportunity to explore many possible scenarios and resolve problems before they arise.

Maybe it’s because I’m trying something new in my outline process or maybe it’s something else entirely, but I’m actually starting to enjoy this outline, and I’m excited about book two for the first time in a long time.
