Ask yourself, "What would Dickens do?"

I'm officially removing the word pantser from my vocabulary. I'm going back to what I used to say, "Yeah, I outline." Or I may steal Stephen Kings explanation. I drop a character into an situation that excites me and see what they do.

Hmmm…you could call this character pooping… :lol:

Historically my stories have been more organically developed - not quite by the seat-of-the-pants, but not outlined. I'm currently working on a "who done it" mystery and find it quite necessary to outline. It's not easy, especially with the little practice I've had, to plant clues and keep track of all the suspects and the timeline without having it outlined beforehand. We'll see how it turns out; I'm only a couple chapters in.
Peace,
Cindy
