VIDEO: Pantsing versus Plotting (plus the cutest skinny pig on earth)

How about you? Do you prefer outlining first or just diving in and trusting the Force, Luke?

(That animal at the end is Piggle, the cutest skinny pig on earth.)

    I sometimes do an outline before I dive right into a story, but when inspiration hits me, I will dive right in. Usually, I do know how the beginning and ending will turn out, but in between it’s mostly a mystery. Even though I’ll sometimes have notes and an outline beside me, I never really know how it’s going to turn out. My outlines will change constantly. It’s the thrill of not knowing what will happen is the interesting part.

    However, I have found out that if I do reach a corner I somehow manage to make a way around it. But it may take weeks or even months though to figure it all out in my head. I feel that rushing towards the end doesn’t work out for me even though I really want to finish the story. I find out that waiting it out gives me the best results. It would be nice to dish out a book every year, but patience is the key and you can’t rush ideas or endings. :)

  2. I like your presentation, You have a nice voice for it. My husband and I used to do speech writing and coaching, and here’s one tiny bit of advice. Stop using a script so you can look at the camera. That is hard, especially for us somewhat self-conscious creatures. But it is imperative if you want to connect with your audience. I look forward to your next one.

    I improv my podcasts but if I went off script for the video, you wouldn’t like my presentation. :)
