Madeleine Maddocks from Scribble and Edit is hosting a Plotting Blogfest next  month, and for those of you also participating in the A-Z Blogfest, she has conveniently scheduled it for the Letter P — April 17th.

You can sign up at Madeleine’s site.  On the day of the blogfest, share your methods of plotting. Pantsterers (like me) can share how we manage to write a manuscript without plotting much of anything!

Believe it or not, despite being a dedicated pantsterer, I’ve been trying to outline a future WIP while I work on the editorial revisions for THE CAGED GRAVES.  The revisions have left no time for the WIP I put aside in February.  It was kind of a mess when I left it, so if anything needed outlining it was that project!  But for some reason, my mind started wandering toward a different story … something outside my comfort zone. (wrote about that here)

I’ll have to report back on how outlining works out for me.  So far, I keep adding more and more details to the outline — up to the 50% mark in the story. After that point … I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENS.

Which is pretty much the way it works when I pantster. LOL.
