There’s an old question that nicely sums up the plotting challenge: Are you a plotter or a pantser? Meaning, do you plot out your fiction before you begin, or do you fly by the seat of your pants and plot as you write. This month in Fiction Craft, I asked a handful of authors to tell me how they tackle plotting.
The method of plotting a writer uses can be as unique as a fingerprint. Check out Fiction Craft to see how authors James Bartleman, Lauren B. Davis, Janet Gurtler, S.P. Hozy, Claire Mulligan, and Cathie Pelletier work. Oh yeah, and yours truly.
