And as I stated elsewhere, pantsing works for some, planning for others, a combination of methods for still others. That being said, let's move on.

So williamadams jogged my memory of of all the texts I wrote for my National Guard unit. Standard Operating Procedures, Threat Analysis of our location, Shop Manuals, Op Orders. Nothing that I will ever get credit for but passed the requirements of the Adjutant General and National Guard Bureau. Of course I had to have a strict outline to meet the military requirements. Of course I had to place arse on crooked chair and compose within these requirements. That's what I was being paid to do. But with Weekend Warriors I want to be surprised. I have a bare bones outline and I know how it ends but in between I want to see what my characters do.I tried a template once and when I was done I was done with the book. Felt I already wrote it. I have a small notebook with stuff only I would understand. When arse gets planted I have something to say. But nobody is paying me and there is no deadline and I have 7 library books to read and the cats are hungry and the kitchen floor is horribly dirty and....

Sorry pls. I didn't realize as a moderator you can say "enough is enough" and close out the subject. I learned something from every reply.

The only book about writing worth having/reading is a high school grammar book. Anything else typically falls into one of two categories (sometimes both): A) Various writers giving their opinions or telling what worked for them; B) people wanting to sell how-to books. If you really want to learn about writing, read what you want to write and then write. Rinse and repeat. Over and over and over.

JMO, of course ;)
