Okay, there are two kinds of writers – “pantsers” and “outliners.” I’m a “pantser,” which means I fly by the seat of my pants. I don’t outline a story…I can’t…I just sit and write. My characters tell me where the story should go. It’s a freeing experience; however, when it comes to editing after you’re ‘done,’ it’s a bear.
This is why it’s taken me MONTHS to re-write and edit…removing parts that don’t need to be there…changing scenes around…adding scenes where they need to be, etc.
I like the feeling of just being able to write, but I DON’T like the re-writes. So, those of you still eagerly awaiting my book, please don’t give up on me. I’m still plugging away at it! It’s difficult when you still have a full-time job, because it seriously hampers the writing time and entire process.
Thank you for your kindest wishes and encouragement along my journey.
