Share your thoughts..."It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does." ~ William Faulkner
What do you rely on, dear reader? When you write or read, are you more interested in the plot or the characters? If you are a writer, are you plotter or a pantser?
Plotter: You outline everything about your book. Character traits, how scenes take their course, and you know the end as soon as soon as you begin to write.
Pantser: You write and don't outline or plot anything. You just follow your characters or the plot and let them lead you.
