Are you a plotter or a panster?

And have you ever tried to convert someone to your way of writing?

Writing is intensely personal and although I know writing professionally is miles different than writing for fun, does it change the fundamental way we write?

I'm a pantser, through and through. At times I start with a simple concept. Other times a character... and yes, armed with only that, I jump into a story. Are there rewrites? There always are. Do I get stuck? Not as often as you might think...

Oh, I'm blathering!

Pantser... BUT *Big BUT here* I am trying to plot. I have a proposal out now on a book I haven't yet written, but the synopsis is DONE! And you know what? I can't wait to get started on the story.

I tried that once! I had the whole synopsis done and it sounded pretty good, but when I wrote it... blah. I wasn't feeling it.

But that's me.

Good luck with your proposal and the story.
