Follow The Leader


Are you a conductor leading an orchestra of characters? Or are you a leaf being carried away on a sea of creativity with your characters steering you through the rapids?

I would like to pretend I’m the conductor who is firmly guiding the characters in my brain through the waters of writing a paranormal romance.

The truth is that most of the time, my characters are the guides.  I rarely plot out a story because when I do…nothing I plan on seems to happen.  I’ve given up on ever being a true ‘plotter.’  I’m a pantser all the way.

Pantser is a very odd word.  It’s not really a word.

And now I’m distracted by semantics.  Is it really semantics when it’s not a real word?



So what kind of writer are you?
