What Kind of Writer are You?
Are you a Pantser or a Planner?

Whether you like to have every scene on a note card, before you put pen to paper, or you prefer to write by the seat of your pants (thus the name), you still need to do some planning - your way, of course.

 
Both ways of approaching your book-writing are 100% valid and represent different creative styles.

Can you tell which you are?
  •   Planners enjoy getting a very clear image of their book, and holding a tight focus on the plot and characters as they write. They probably think it’s the only way to write a good book.
  •  Pantsers like to stage the book in their minds, but then let it take on a life of its own, and improv the story and events, as they write. They probably think that the level of prep and outlining that others recommend would 1) kill them where they stand, and 2) stifle the book, make it seem not “real” not “organic.”

You know you're a Planner if...
  •  You love office supplies, post it notes, and perfect pens
  •  You've always enjoyed outlining 
  •  You make even simple decisions using pros and cons lists 
  •  You lay your work outfit out the night before 
  •  You write from notecards 
  •  You want every detail worked out before you begin writing 
  •  You keep lists for everything 
  •  You have a calendar that you couldn't live without 
  •  You think about the future and plan ahead
You know you're a Panster if...
  • Planning makes your head hurt
  •  Outlining is a foreign language 
  •  You're decisive and okay with your decisions - nothing's permanent, right? 
  •  You like to build the plane as you're flying it 
  •  You don't write from notes 
  •  Working out the details kills the creativity of writing - that's why you're writing it, to see how it ends 
  •  You keep a lot of details in your head - and enjoy complexity 
  •  You live in the moment
For NaNoWriMo success, stay tuned, get your thoughts organized and Hit the Ground Writing - in just ten days.
