Planning vs Pantsing… which side are you guys on?
I wrote Sector12 by the seam of my pants. I had a vague idea in mind and just went for it. Which was great, because I had a novel. But sucked, because I had a novel riddled with plot holes.
At the moment, I’m jumping on the “planning” bandwaggon. I’m spending the month of December planning and plotting a new novel that I’ll start writing in January. It’s called Wrapped in Darkness and is going to be an urban/fantasy set in Purgatory 🙂 It is a novel that has been swirling around in my head for about six years so I’m really excited to start writing it. My general goal is to write it January-March, edit from April-June and then start hunting for an agent mid-2014. *nods* I am very good with timelines.
So what do you guys think? Plan or pants?
